Winemaker Notes

The aroma has fruit and violets, a very elegant bouquet. Continues fruity in the mouth, well balanced and harmonious tannins already tamed by time, very correct, stylish and slim.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Touriga Nacional Quinta da Falorca, seen here as a first look, was only in bottle about 90 days when seen. It is sourced from 40-year-old-vines containing some 30 different clones. Despite its recent bottling, it seems like a beauty in this vintage, caressing in texture, more lively than the Reserva Lagar also reviewed this issue, showing increasing complexity with air and the probability of harmony in the future. It was aged for 18 months in new French oak, then held back in tank for another 18 months. This is an impressive Touriga in its earthy and complex style. There are tannins in the back – so don’t be surprised if it is a better idea to hold it rather than plunge in. There were 4,635 bottles made. Drink 2015-2028.

Quinta da Falorca, Portugal
Quinta da Falorca was formed by the Costa Barros de Figueiredo family, and continues to produce wine after more than five generations. Located in the Dão, Silgueiros is in the heart of the River Dão, 10 miles south from Viseu. The quinta has a productive area of 13 hectares of vineyards, that lie over the hill slope of the river, facing south with total exposure to the sun. Given its exceptional conditions, Quinta da Falorca also has another 10 ha, providing an agricultural and forest area with olive, hazel-nut and pine trees. At the moment the average yearly production is 50,000 bottles of wine.

Portugal

View all wine

Best known for intense, impressive and age-worthy fortified wines, Portugal relies almost exclusively on its many indigenous grape varieties. Bordering Spain to its north and east, and the Atlantic Ocean on its west and south coasts, this is a land where tradition reigns supreme, due to its relative geographical and, for much of the 20th century, political isolation. A long and narrow but small country, Portugal claims considerable diversity in climate and wine styles, with milder weather in the north and significantly more rainfall near the coast.

While Port (named after its city of Oporto on the Atlantic Coast at the end of the Douro Valley), made Portugal famous, Portugal is also an excellent source of dry red and white wines of various styles.

The Duoro Valley produces full-bodied and concentrated dry red wines made from the same set of grape varieties used for Port, which include Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz (Spain’s Tempranillo), Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca and Tinto Cão, among a long list of others in minor proportions.

Other dry wines include the tart, slightly effervescent Vinho Verde white wine, made in the north, and the bright, elegant reds and whites of the Dão as well as the bold, and fruit-driven reds and whites of the southern, Alentejo.

The nation’s other important fortified wine, Madeira, is produced on the eponymous island off the North African coast.

Touriga Nacional

View all wine

Bold, lush, and full of intense dark fruit, Touriga Nacional has gained great popularity for its dry wines but actually is the noblest variety in the blend that composes Port wine. The grape most likely orginated from the Dão region and also grows throughout the Douro Valley, both great Portuguese wine producing regions.

In the Glass

Touriga Nacional produces a deeply purple-dominated red wine with concentrated flavors of blackberry, plum, black cherry and cocoa powder. Aromas vary from sweet violets, mint, and often vanilla and baking spice (depending on its oak aging). In texture it has fine tannins and if you’re a Cabernet drinker, this would make an excellent new wine to try.

Perfect Pairings

Barbecue, Beef Tenderloin, Shepherd’s Pie, grilled sausages and any blue cheese will work well with a Touriga Nacional.

Sommelier Secret

For Port wine, there are 52 approved grape varieties that can go into the blend. Each grape has something unique to contribute to make an overall harmonious end product. Likewise in its dry wine form, you will often find Touriga Nacional blended with some of the other best Portugese grapes like Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz (synonym for Tempranillo), Tinta Barroca and Tinta Cão.
