Colour: Deep ruby. Aroma: Distinctive of Touriga Nacional grape, floral hint of violet and bergamot, ripe blackcurrant combined with the elegance of Allier oak. Palate: Robust yet smooth tannins, perfectly complemented by berry fruit flavours with great balance and complexity. Very smooth, pleasant and persistent. Food Pairing: Goes well with game, spicy roasted red meat.

Wine EnthusiastThis is an impressive Touriga Nacional from its home region. Aged for 12 months in wood, it has mint and eucalyptus flavors to add to the dark tannic fruit. Blackberries and juicy acidity are combined with the core of tannins to deliver a powerful statement that needs some more time to mature.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Touriga Nacional Reserva Especial Fonte do Ouro was aged for 12 months in new French oak. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. This adds a layer of depth to the regular Reserva blend this issue; although it is still on the elegant side, it easily retains all of that wine's freshness. It also adds somewhat better structure and far better aromatics. The fruit is gorgeous, filled with flavor. Running about 19 euros, this is not quite as much of a bargain as the blend is, but it is a wine with more upside potential in the cellar.
