NV Tres Tintos

NV Tres Tintos Wine Details

Description: Tres Tintos is the union of three Mediterranean grape varietals: Tinta Cao, Touriga Nacional, and Bastardo. This marriage has produced a harmonious, supple wine that is elegantly structured. It exhibits characteristics of black cherry and mulberry discreetly blended, and has a dry, lingering finish. Tres Tintos is made with the care and tradition of Mediterranean style winemaking. Tres Tintos is truly "A Taste of the Old World" made in Texas.

Varietal Definition
Touriga Nacional:
Found in California and South Africa, this fiercest and best of the port grapes has also been successfully transplanted to Australia for fortified wine production. The vine produces grapes with small, darkly-pigmented berries. Notorious for low yields, attributes like its intense rich fruit personality make this grape a highly-regarded and sought after varietal. In addition to being important in port production, it is also increasingly significant in the rich, red table wines of Portugal’s Dao and Douro valleys.
