Tussock Jumper Touriga Nacional - Aragonez 2019
Tussock Jumper Touriga Nacional - Aragonez is a characterful Portuguese red blend.
Deep red colour, almost black. Exudes soft aromas of cassis and raisins with a touch of coconut. The dry and medium-bodied palate is well-balanced with round tannins, a bright acidity, soft texture and rich flavours that extend to a long finish. Cassis and red currant flood the palate with hints of dark chocolate, red cherries and underlying coconut soon following.
75% Aragonez and 25% Touriga Nacional. The grapes come from vineyards in the Alentejano region of Portugal. The vines grow in clay and Schist (35%) soils with Magnesium sedimentary clay-loam.
Picking the grapes under the cover of night to preserve the full aromas. 50% of the wine ages in French and American Oak barrels before bottling.
