Mary Taylor 2019 Touriga Nacional Blend, Douro, Portugal
Mary Taylor 2019 Douro, Portugal
- Winemaker: Filipe Ferreira (Quinta da Foz)
- Farming: Sustainable
- Variety: 60% Touriga Nacional, 25% Tinta Roriz , 15% Touriga France
- Terroir: Quinta da Foz is located at the junction of the Douro River and its tributary, the Pinhão, in the Cima Corgo subregion. Here, in the center of the Douro Valley, steep terraces are cut into the schist riverbanks, where vine roots seek out the pockets of moisture in the foliated sheets of schist, bringing a great minerality to the final wine. The wine is drawn from 50-80 year old vines.
- Vinification: Everything is hand harvested. All of the wines are foot-pressed in large granite lagares. The wine is aged in stainless steel.
