- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
Conrad Pohlinger has struck out with two offbeat varieties for his first release under the Atwill’s label.
The Touriga Nacional is his attempt to make the ultimate couch wine. A wine fit for snuggling under a warm blanket and sitting by a fire, and he’s done just that.
This takes the hearty, juicy fruit of Touriga and puts it front and centre. Insanely aromatic and fleshy in the palate, this is a highly slurpable version of this loveable Portuguese variety.
What It Tastes Like
Blood pudding, blood plums, iodine and and a slick, juicy coating of red and blue fruit. It’s ripe and cuddly in style, looking for max glugability and finding it. The floral aromatics go wild from the glass. It’s such a good drink. Nailled it from the first ball, has Conrad.
Variety: Touriga Nacional
Region: Langhorne Creek
Hailing from the banks of Lake Alexandrina where the grapes enjoy a warm, breezy upbringing. The idea with this was to create the ultimate sofa wine. Whole berries were used to soften the herbaceous, juicy character of Touriga. The wine was matured over the winter in old (5+ years) oak to mellow out any rough edges without adding flavour. Bottled unfiltered in December 2016. Makes you want to cuddle up with a blanket.
Bottle Size: 750ml
Drink Until: 2021
About the Producer
Atwill’s is Conrad Pohlinger’s pet project. After working with Brendan & Laura Carter of Unico Zelo in the Adelaide Hills, he’s struck out on his own with a couple of eye-catching releases. The wines have a warmth and richness to them but with a freshness in toe. Small batches only made and little adjustments in the winery. Another exciting project to watch from the vibrant Adelaide Hills.
