4 ½ Stars 2019 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Touriga (70%) blended with 3 tintas as usual on 16 (90 pts). Dark fruit & tobacco on aromas & flavours more complex than the varietal port-grape table reds. Like them, ripe & a touch sweet. Velvety texture – a glove for an iron fist of tannin. Lingering flavours. Should develop well.

It’s not easy making balanced table wines in the heat of Calitzdorp, but this stylish cuvée of mostly Touriga Nacional with Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barocca and Tinta Amarella is wonderfully fresh and perfumed, showing violet and lily aromas, fine tannins, sweet blackberry fruit and granular tannins. 2019-25
