Dão is often called, by connoisseurs, the Burgundy of Portugal for its ability to produce highly elegant, age-worthy, food-friendly, complex wines. This Touriga Nacional is complex and amazingly perfumed with aromas of violet, cassis, pepper, leather, liquorice with a very fresh and balanced finish of sous bois.

Winemaking

The first brand by Casa da Passarella, Villa Oliveira, was originally born more than 100 ago. To pay a faithful homage to our history, we have decided to produce these extremely limited editions. It comes from hand-picked 100% Touriga Nacional grapes. The fermentation is achieved with indigenous yeasts in cement tanks followed by a maceration period of one month. The ageing process occurs in 225 litres French oak barrels for a period of 18 months. This wine is not subject to filtering. With a rigorously limited edition of 2500 bottles, this wine expresses the aim of producing a Touriga Nacional old vine. In a region where the old vineyard is formed by a wide mixture of grape varieties in the same plot of land, we decided in 2009 to harvest 3500 kg Touriga Nacional grapes from a single 80-year-old vineyard, which implied choosing the Touriga Nacional variety from the other grape varieties in that plot. From this highly selective harvest emerged a classical Touriga Nacional, whose wine making process was developed taking into account the exceptional raw material, with no use of any type of yeasts, industrial enzymes or correction.
