Tecedeiras Touriga Franca 2018


An example of the determination of a Douro vintner from the Cima Corgo sub-region, Albino de Souza. As part of the fight against phylloxera, he created this now iconic varietal from a cross between Touriga Nacional and Mourisco Tinto.

Harvested manually and then selected by hand at the sorting table. Destemming and light crushing. Fermentation in used 500L French oak barrels where they were subjected to gentle punching down.
Aged for 19 months in barrels, the wine is then bottled after gentle fining. The bottles are rested in our cellar for another 12 months before commercial release.
All our wines are sealed with natural cork. There is no filtering or cold-stabilisation, meaning deposits can form. We recommend decanting.
