Touriga Franca Wines

If you like Merlot, Malbec or lighter styles of Zinfandel you’ll love wines made with Touriga Franca. This is traditionally a Portuguese red grape variety which is one of the five permitted varieties used in the making of Port. It is a high quality grape that adds finesse to any wine. It is the most widely planted grape in the Douro Valley where it is also used for making dry red wines which are often full-bodied and dark coloured with floral aromas and the taste of blackberry. Game, red meats such as beef and lamb or mushroom dishes pair nicely with dry Touriga Franca wines and Port pairs brilliantly with hard or blue cheeses.
