Region: Dão, Portugal Grape(s): 80% Touriga Nacional, 5% Tinta Roriz, 5% Jaen, 5% Alfrocheiro Preto Winemaker: Natalia Jessa Drinks Best: Now - 3 Years
Natalia Jessa got her start as a wine buyer and enthusiast in Poland and Ireland. A student of the “drink it, don’t overthink it” school of thought, Natalia saw the undiscovered potential of many Portuguese wine regions. Her mission is to produce wines that will showcase the top regions of Portugal, working closely with small farmers growing only local varieties. ‘Bergamota’ is a blend of mostly Touriga Nacional which imparts complex aromas of violets, cocoa, cherries, and tangerine. The palate is rich and structured, yet refined, with powerful notes of leather, tobacco, and blackberry jam.
