Falua Terciua Touriga Nacional 2011

Falua Terciua Touriga Nacional 2011 $22  ★★★★Touriga1

“I reckon it’s an absolute star, and is my go-to red wine right now.” Says Richard Sherriff of Wellington’s Regional Wines & Spirits – who isn’t easy to impress. “Dollar for dollar there isn’t much that comes close to it” – and I’d have to agree.  This excellent Portuguese wine is bright, glossy and blood-red in the glass, intensely floral on the nose and edged with all sorts of dark berry notes.  There’s a tweak of liquorice and dusty, carpenters workshop in there too.  Clean, fresh acidity, good complexity and a lick of earth and stone make this a definite new favourite for me too.  www.regionalwines.co.nz
