Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca
It has a deep ruby-red hue and an intense bouquet, with a prevalence of rock-rose floral notes, as well as ripe red fruits, like plum and strawberry. There are also notes of cedar, as well as of spices, a characteristic of the years of careful maturation, with delicate complexity arising out of discreet and well-integrated oak ageing. The palate also reveals ripe red fruits and has elegant body, well-integrated acidity, and fine-quality tannins, with a balanced, harmonious and extended finish.
Store and Serve Advices:
It was made to be drunk young. However, it will maintain its quality for some years after the vintage, provided it is kept horizontally and in a dark, dry and cool place. Although ready to drink now, this wine will develop further in the bottle. In order to preserve its highest quality, Papa Figos was bottled without cold stabilization, and so it is normal that it may develop a slight deposit with time. Serve between 16ºC-18ºC.
Ideal with all types of poultry and game, various meats, smoked pork and cheese.
