2017 Meia Touriga Nacional 750ML
The Meia label pays homage to our Pritchard Hill site and highlights a different varietal every growing season. For the first time ever our wine making team of Philppe Melka and Adam Casto have crafted a dry Touriga Nacional from the half acre planted on Gandona's Pritchard Hill Estate. This grape, cultivated on our property as a nod to the Portuguese heritage of Vintner and Proprietor Manuel Pires, is grown widely in the Douro and Dão regions of Portugal, and is considered to produce the finest wines in the country. Cabernet lovers will swoon over the well structured tannin, balanced acidity and flavors of our inaugural Touriga vintage. The 2017 Meia is bold and rich with palate-coating, tooth-staining richness of blueberry, plum, blackberry, bittersweet cocoa and a subtle stimulating flavor of mint and violet wrapped in an Italian leather glove. Enjoy this wine now and over the next 5-8 years.
