DESCRIPTION

Sliver medal winner at 2013 Mundus Vini competition in Germany. Bronze Medal Winner in Decanter Magazine 2013. Selected for 50 Great Portuguese Wines by U.K. wine writer Olly Smith. Olly goes on to say that.. “the best Portuguese reds are deliciously focused and pure, with a stylish fruit-driven style. TNT here stands for Touriga Nacional and Trincadeira in this fun and inventive modern label…the Beira Interior is a place to watch. The wine here excels. It’s good value, with bright berry flavors alongside some spice and fragrance from the winery led by Jose Almeida Garrett who, on this basis, deserves more attention.” This wine is dynamite with seasoned meats, sausages, strong cheeses, as well as roast beef or lamb with mint sauce
