More about this wine

Five of the region’s tongue-twisting red grape varieties have been picked, stomped and fortified before weaving their way down the hill-hugging roads to the city of Porto to be aged. While a season is a long time in the life of an F.C. Porto supporter (who won the Champions League in 2003 under José Mourinho), the local Port makers have a longer term view: tawny wines sleep their quiet slumber in wooden barrels for, on average, two decades before hitting the bottle.

This Port is rich and complex with intense flavours of nuts, caramel and dates. Refined and mature, it’s far more sophisticated than most 20 year olds we know.

Touriga Franca

The Low Down:

  1. Though not the most famous, Touriga Franca is the grape most widely grown in Portugal's Duoro and is found in many dry red and Port wine blends.
  2. Touriga Franca used to be known as Touriga Francesa but the name was changed in 2000, apparently to make it clearer that the grape had no connection with France. We're not entirely sure the new name does that...
  3. Touriga Franca is like a more delicate, more perfumed version of Touriga Nacional. They make a good partnership: Franca from the aromatics and softness and Nacional for colour and backbone.
Pronounced: Portugal: [Tor-ree-ga fran-ka) Where you'll find it: In our Portuguese wine which include Ohsomm Late Bottled Vintage Port, Ohsomm 20 Year Old Tawny Port and Ohsomm Douro. Read more here

Made with love in the Douro Valley, Portugal.

Standing thigh deep in purple grape juice while dancing to the sound of an accordion played by a guy with more wrinkles than an elephant sounds like a strange dream, but it’s a nightly reality at harvest time in the Douro Valley.A seeming world away from the buzzy city of Porto, a deafening silence falls over these remote vineyards each night. The darkness is intense and the big sky is a planetarium-worthy show of dazzling stars.The only noise that breaks this monastery-like silence comes during the harvest when the accordion is dusted off, vineyard workers limber up their vocal chords and dancing feet stomp the grapes.This is one of the oldest Protected Designation of Origin regions in Portugal’s wine growing history. Over 250 years old, it is located in north-eastern Portugal along the Douro River valley. This region is bordered by mountain ranges in the north, west, and south and by the border with Spain in the east.
