Touriga Nacional

Undoubtedly Portugal’s greatest black grape, Touriga Nacional is receiving a lot of interest at the moment with wineries in Australia and the US increasing plantings. Not that they are going to use it to make port – no, it’s the grape’s potential for still wines, as evidenced by some of the young, upstart winemakers of the Douro Valley which is sparking off new ideas and new wines and, as ever, South Africa is right in the thick of this too.
