Quinta do Crasto Touriga Nacional is pure quality. Touriga Nacional is one of the most important grapes in the region (and the country) and is really given a chance to shine here. Elegance and complexity personified.
95 points Wine Spectator. “Big, rich and full of Asian spice notes that are woven between the ripe dark plum, blackberry and dried blueberry flavours. Chocolate mousse accents linger on the long and creamy finish with some savory hints. Complex.”
92 points Decanter Magazine ” a complex flavour spectrum from sweet, creamy blackberry to lush Morello cherry with a twist of bitter chocolate and crushed velvet tannins. The finish is imperiously long.”
91 Points – Mark Squires erobertparker.com “Utterly charming, crisp and aromatic, it is refined and beautifully balanced. Quite forward this year, it should be very nice young – which doesn’t mean that it won’t improve over the next few years.”
“The 2012 is certainly very pretty” – Sarah Ahmed
