Battle of Bosworth Vintage Fortified Touriga
Back to the future with this opulent Vintage Fortified . In the old days we would have called this wine a Vintage Port. This Bosworth incarnation is made using Touriga Nacional, one of the best known red varieties from Portugal where it plays a leading role in the production of vintage ports and increasingly, dry red wines. (We make a medium-bodied dry red as well)
Touriga has terrific structure and body and has great tannins and concentrated flavors of black fruit - perfect for making Vintage Fortified wines. We pick the Touriga flavour and sugar ripe and ferment it in open vessels. The wine is then fortified with fine brandy grape spirit to stop the fermentation process and elevate the alcohol up to about 19% alcohol.
