De Krans Touriga Nacional 2002

The wine has a vibrant deep plum colour, with dense aromas of chocolate, spice, pepper, a touch of vanilla and prunes. It has a fleshy, chewy mouthful of flavours. The firm tannin structure, together with the concentrated fruit, ensures excellent maturation potential. This wine, which is the flagship dry red wine from De Krans, is bottled in an elegant bottle, with the label screen printed directly on to the bottle.
