frankfurt cheap flights Three Dark Horses Grenache Touriga 2017
A true representation of vineyard and fruit. Immediate aromas of raspberries are followed by cherries and musky spice. The palate is unrestrained and delicious. Fresh and lively with black cherry and some darker fruit flavour. Complex, textural and plush. Lovely spice and savouriness kick through the finish.
75% Grenache and 25% Touriga
Awards and Accolades
2015 Vintage: 91 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Whole bunches, co-fermented, wild yeast, unoaked, unfined and unfiltered. It's so fresh it's spritzy. It leaps through the palate with cranberry and sweet red cherry flavours aplenty. It's not deep or intense but it has impact; indeed it has a playfulness. Difficult not to have fun drinking this."
From the Winery
A blend of Grenache and Touriga, co fermented with 50% whole bunches and fermented with natural yeasts this is fruit forward but balanced by earthy, more savoury edges and natural acidity. Untamed but utterly delicious.
50% whole bunches of Grenache and Touriga are placed in the bottom of an open fermenter, with the balanced crushed on top. The ferment is allowed to proceed with wild rather than cultured yeasts for seven days. The wine is then gently basket pressed to stainless steel tank where it is settled naturally and bottled without the use of oak, fining or filtration.
