About the Wine
This red wine is made by Quinta das Murças in Douro. Rich berry fruits and spice make this the perfect partner for roasted red meats. Formed from primarily Touriga Franca grapes, this wine is ethically produced, vegan and vegetarian friendly. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark. Supplied by Esporão.
Used mainly for Port wine production, this grape produces deep colour wines with floral, red-fruit flavours. It is more aromatic and lighter bodied than Touriga Nacional.
