Churchill’s Estates Touriga Nacional is produced exclusively from Touriga Nacional grapes grown on our Douro Estates. We wanted to show off the indigenous grape variety from Portugal and the Douro valley.

This wine has a deep black violet hue colour. On the nose, intense fresh spicy aromas with hints of wild basil and gum cistus. Velvety and well balanced on the palate, combining notes of green peppers and resinous notes with excellent natural acidity.

  • WINEMAKING NOTES

    The grapes are hand-picked into small boxes of approx. 20 kilos and brought to the winery where they undergo a careful selection process before being crushed. The vinification takes place in small stainless steel fermentation tanks. The grapes are fully destemmed and crushed. After 4 days of cold maceration, the fermentation process follows under temperature-controlled conditions. The juice is gently pumped over the skins during fermentation which is long and even ensuring good aromatic and polyphenolic extraction.
