Casa Burmester Douro DOC Red Touriga Nacional 2016

With an appealing violet colour, this wine displays fine and delicate notes of orange blossom wrapped in exuberant aromas of ripe fruit. A concentrated wine, with well-integrated notes of smoke from the French oak barrel, and round and silky tannins. Balanced and surprisingly fresh, this is a single varietal Touriga Nacional that reflects the characteristics of the grape in a lovely way. A long and persistent finish.
