Touriga Nacional & Tinta Caiada

IDENTITY

A tart, fresh, non-alcoholic juice made from unripe Touriga Nacional & Tinta Caiada grapes.

TASTING NOTES

Pale yellow colour. Fresh with a delicate, sweet-tart ringing acidity and flavours of apple and a hint of wood.

SERVICE & PAIRING

Verjus is much appreciated by many chefs as a milder alternative to lemon juice and vinegar. Verjus and wine are perfect for serving together as they have the same tartaric acid base. Add it as a gentle acidulant whenever you want just a bite of flavour. Verjus can be used all by itself in a salad dressing or to heighten the flavours of soups and sauces. It makes an excellent marinade and may be used for cooking or deglazing or even to add a special zing to cocktails and desserts.

PRODUCTION

The unripe grapes are pressed and the juice is kept cool for up to three weeks to allow natural sedimentation to occur. Then it is filtered and gently pasteurised before bottling.
