The lesser known, Touriga Nacional (Touriga amongst friends) has been a favoured grape of mine since I started wine making in 1988. I was introduced to it by my friend David Guimeraens, who I studied with at Roseworthy College all those years ago. David’s home was (and still is) Portugal, Touriga is their Shiraz equivalent, widely grown and very versatile. Its notoriety is derived from its ability to produce the world’s highest quality Vintage Port. However, its suitability for the production of dry red table wine, is very well established. The varietal assimilates and presents its delicious array of flavours at a lower ripeness, this results in an explosive, flavoured wine with a more medium bodied feel. Like Barbera, Touriga is a rare variety in Australia at present, but one which suits our lifestyle and tastes.
