2014 Pig Schist Touriga

Touriga is a traditional Portuguese varietal.

Yes, it’s used to make Port, but it is also used to make dry red wine.

We have had Touriga in the winery now a couple of times (we made it in to Port first time) and it really surprises me.

As a dry red it comes across light and floral with a surprising fullness to the palate. It’s a good drink.

During my studies of the variety when I was trying to get my head around it I read that in Portugal that it was commonly grown in a soil type named Schist. I couldn’t resist using that in the name...

The Pig Schist is currently scheduled for bottling on the 24th of February, so to be the first to try it ring Linda on (02) 65747000 or email on bosshog@piggspeake.com

The Swines price is $38 and the cellar door price is $45. It is the smallest red wine bottling for the year and I don’t think it will be around for long at all.
