ODE ‘Lagares’ Touriga Nacional 2022



Touriga Nacional, like Syrah and Aragonés is often associated with making powerful, tannic wines. However, like these other varieties, Touriga Nacional also has a softer side. It is the spicy, aromatic characters of Touriga that makes the variety something special.

Our best Touriga Nacional fruit is hand harvested then trodden by foot in stone ‘lagares’. It is then matured in stainless steel tanks and French Oak puncheons for 12 months. Highly toned, with aromas of spicy red fruits and focussed, fine finish. This is Touriga Nacional at its most elegant.


A wine with this finesse is the perfect match for poultry, duck, quail, pheasant and squab. Its delicate structure also allows to pair well with oily fish like salmon and tuna. That said, it is a ioy to drink on its own. Cheers!


This wine will continue to improve in complexity over the next 10 years.
