Food Pairings for Churchill Touriga Nacional Red
Since the acquisition of their new vineyards in 1999, they have been developing a Douro table wine project. The project has been under the responsibility of Joao Brito e Cunha, one of the well known new generation Portuguese oenologists. With the objective of producing Douro Wine with more character and finesse, a decision was made on the definitive sourcing for Churchill table wines from their own estates: Quinta da Gricha, their principal vineyard, has a microclimate and special terroir that produces distinctively elegant wines with excellent natural acidity and purity of fruit.These now provide the basis for their single estate 'Quinta da Gricha,' and our 'Churchill Estate' red wines. This wine has a deep violet colour with a garnet rim. A heavy nose of wild basel and eucalyptus. On the palate, full bodied with firm tannins and a dominating freshness, finishing long and smooth with hints of pepper and spice.
