Senses Touriga Nacional

Grape varieties: 100% Touriga Nacional

Soil: Chalky-clay and schist

Vinification: Though a recent variety in the Alentejo region, this important variety in the Portuguese portfolio has already proven it can produce grapes with an excellent quality in the South region of our country. The number of vines that include Touriga Nacional as one of their grapes has been increasing.
The grapes were selected through a rigorous maturation control. In the winery, after the manual harvesting and the careful transport, the grapes were destemmed and fermented with complete maceration in stainless steel lagares (wine presses) at a controlled temperature of 25ºC, after which the malolactic fermentation followed, performed in stainless steel vats.

Ageing: For the wine to gain more complexity and a balanced structure, it aged for 9 months in new French oak barrels and for about 4 months in the bottle.
