About The Wine
Touriga is one variety making a surge across a myriad of Australian wine regions at the moment.
Many winemakers are falling in love with its high-toned aromatics and luscious, juicy mid palate: winemakers like Mount Majura's Frank van der Loo. He has long championed cool-climate Tempranillo, and this Touriga is yet another step towards broadening the scope of Canberra District red wines.
On this release, Mike Bennie says, "Really yummy, is the expression here." It's a fantastic alternative to more traditional styles of reds commonly produced in the region, inbuilt with moreish intrigue.
