Our new Limited Release 2015 Vintage Touriga delivers a sublime drinking experience that Fortified wine lovers will savour.
Winner of two major awards - a Gold medal at the 2015 Rutherglen Wine Show and Best Fortified at the North East Wine Challenge - it comes from grapes picked at Gapsted Wines' own vineyard in the Alpine Valleys.
Each bottle is individually numbered, with just over 1,000 bottles produced.
This wine delivers intense spicy raisin and ripe blackcurrant aromas, developing into cherries and rich, dark fruits. The palate is consumed by layers of liquorice, textural tannins and mouth-filling blackberry fruit flavours.
This delightful wine works well with quince paste and most cheeses, including soft rind, aged and semi-aged Cheddar, blue (including Stilton), goats, goats blue, soft rind blue (eg. Roquefort), sheep (eg. Pecorino) and Ricotta. Fruits such as figs (dried and fresh), pear and apples also combine well with this Fortified, especially when these fruits are made into baked desserts – add a dollop or two of ice cream for maximum enjoyment!
Nuts are another natural accompaniment, including walnuts, pistachios, brazil nuts and almonds.
While undoubtedly youthful, this wine has extraordinary drinkability and is robust enough for maturation for an eternity.
