Portugal’s Touriga Nacional is key to port but also makes gorgeous, fruit-rich table wines. The esteemed Freitas family won Gold with this wine’s launch and have been impressing customers since, reeling in awards for its velvety, spiced flavours.

Tasting notes: Immense flavour and richness with firm tannins, yet velvety texture

Aroma: Spiced bramble, cassis, plum and blackcurrant aromas

Allergy information: Contains Sulphites

The word ‘Nacional’ is reserved for treasures that fly the flag for Portugal. Touriga Nacional certainly does that. This wine’s from Casa Ermelinda Freitas, an estate founded a century ago and proud to have been run by three generations of women. The highly awarded Leonor Freitas is in charge today, with her daughter, Joana, next in line. A decade ago the family bought Senhor Fava’s vineyard, with its prized sandy soils. He’d always been one of their top growers, but wanted to retire, so they named this wine, made from its grapes, in his honour. Since then, it’s won 29 Golds in five vintages and was listed as ‘Best Portuguese wine’ by The Independent. With over 1200 5-star online reviews, it’s a much-loved red. Ideal with roast meats.
