Tasting Notes

"A blend of Touriga Nacional and Alicante Bouschet, the wine is still seriously young. Firm tannins go with the youthful black fruits and rich blackberry flavors. Everything is lifted by acidity filled out with spice and a jammy, fruity aftertaste. Drink from 2021."

Mr. Joaquim Mascarenhas Fiuza was the 11th generation of the Fronteira Family . He was the father of the present owners of the company and was the person responsible for the creation and development of the Fiuza Brand. The company started operating in the beginning of the 20th century when Mr. Joaquim Mascarenhas Fiuza and his uncle begun to produce wine on the family estates. Mr. Joaquim Mascarenhas Fiuza had two passions: Winemaking and Sailing, and during is long life (he lived 102 years) he was able to develop both in an enthusiastic way.
