JAG Touriga Nacional is a powerful, complex, delicious and smoky wine with notes of blackberry ending intense, elegant and tasty. The wine is elegant in aroma, fine in fruit and floral notes but all in a very nice and well-judged register. Elegant in the mouth with very fine tannins, with a very attractive fruit that makes the taste a pleasure.
It’s created by Jose Neiva Correia of DFJ Vinhos. He was a descendant from several generations of winemakers both father and mother and followed the family tradition with taste and professionalism.
JAG Touriga Nacional was done by classic fermentation method with destemming and pre-fermentative skin contact followed by application of active dry yeasts. Fermentation at 30ºC in the first 2/3, and lowering to 20ºC during the last 1/3. Throughout the fermentation process 2 daily reassemblies are made using in each half of the volume contained in the vat. After alcoholic fermentation, the blanket is dipped for 30 days, during which the soft tannins are extracted, malolactic fermentation and natural stabilization of the wine. Ageing 6 months in 225Lt French Oak Allier barrels from Seguin Moreau. Minimum 6 months in the bottle after bottling.
