Allesverloren Touriga Nacional 2005

The wine of Gods

This wine is definetely the best wine since I had the privilege to open a bottle of Castillo Ygay 1968, a few years ago. The old wine brought tears to my eyes, and had so many different aromas that my little head worked hard to digest the impressions. The Allesverloren producers, once again brought tears to my eyes. The Touriga Nacional 2005 competes with the best wines from Spain and the great amarone wines from Italy. But I think it is even better.

It is made from Touriga Nacional, a portuguese grape used to make ports. It is a strong wine with an alcohol content of 15%. It has the deepest ruby colour I have seen, and when taking your first sip, your pallet can absorb the richest and softest aromas of forest berries, and herbs and a distinct oak character. This is the wine of Gods. Maybe the best of them all. This is the wine for game, roasts as it may overpower other, lighter food. But this is the wine for the most seductive moments, as well!!

You pay under €20 for this wine. Enjoy Food & Travel recommends it, it is a bargain, so buy a few bottles. You will not regret it.
