Touriga Nacional is a very known and well-appreciated grape varietal, perhaps the most celebrated one in Portugal, having been disseminated to practically every region in the country.
Its thick skin, rich in natural tint, provides intense color to its wines.
The abundance of primary aromas is a characteristic of this grape variety, presenting both floral and fruity and always intense and penetrating.
Touriga Nacional is the fourth most planted grape in the Setúbal Peninsula.
It produces full bodied wines with powerful and exceptional aromatic qualities, providing a soft, warm flavor dominated by notes of ripe berries, such as blackberry and blueberry, with floral nuances that resemble violet, rosemary and cistus flower at times.
It produces harmonious wines with a strong alcohol level and excellent aging ability, gaining aromatic complexity when aged in barrel.
Merlot is a red wine variety with strong historic ties to Bordeaux and the southwest of France. The variety is now widely planted in wine regions across the world and, in terms of the volumes of wine produced internationally; it is rivaled only by its Bordeaux companion, Cabernet Sauvignon.
The precise flavors that Merlot imparts to a wine are not easily grouped. It is a grape used for producing wines of a particular texture, rather than a particular taste, relying on organoleptic properties other than just flavor and aroma.
Smooth, rounded and "easy drinking" are common descriptions of Merlot wines. The main reason for this is that Merlot grapes are relatively large in relation to their pips and the thickness of the skins, in which tannins are found. For this reason, the variety is used to soften wines made from more tannic varieties.
It’s environmentally conscious, good value, stylish, carefully sourced, delicious, and banishes the question: “Is it worth opening a bottle?”
The main advantage to bag-in-a-box packaging is that it prevents oxidation of the wine during dispensing.
After opening, wine in a bottle it is oxidized by air in the bottle which has displaced the wine poured; wine in a bag is not touched by air and thus not subject to oxidation until it is dispensed. Cask wine is not subject to cork taint or spoilage due to slow consumption after opening.
Very good solution not only for having it at home but also for restaurants and bars that serve wine by glass.
