CH by Chocapalha 2013

Quinta de Chocapalha

CH by Chocapalha is an homage to the Swiss origins of the Tavares da Silva family. This wine is a pure expression of Touriga Nacional fermented in traditional granite lagares and aged in French oak barriques for 24 months before bottling.

  

Tasting Notes

Deeply expressive, CH by Chocapalha displays bold, dark fruit aromas on the nose with subtle nuances of leather and violet. The structured palate is supported by firm tannins and enticing flavors of black currant and raspberry followed by a remarkable finish.

Food Pairing

Pair with slow roasted brisket or braised lamb shanks.
