Uovo Cabernet Touriga 2021
Cabernet Touriga blends typically combine Cabernet Sauvignon, a well-known varietal with Touriga Nacionel, a Portuguese grape that is know for its intense colour and flavours. The resulting wine is full-bodied with high tannins and acidity, making it ideal for ageing. Rich and full-bodied with firm tannins and good acidity. The nose has notes of dark fruit, blackberry and black cherry, along with hints of spice and tobacco. On the palate, flavours of ripe fruit, chocolate and coffee may be present. The finish should be long and satisfying, with a good balance of tannins and acidity.
A very dry winter and spring (driest in 100 years). These dry conditions continued throughout summer. Good rainfalls in February provided much needed moisture. Very low crops but exceptional reds.
Made in a clay cement ovoid tank -a giant "egg" -the lees are continuously forced upward by an internal current resembling a vortex. This gives the wine voluptuousness, purity and texture. There’s no added tannin, acid, or animal fining products. There is zero sulphur used throughout the winemaking, andonly a minimal amountat bottling.
