Coates Touriga Nacional 2009, Langhorne Creek, SA

Purchased direct from winery, $35

Intense black crimson with a tinge of purple. Quite a restrained nose, coy notes of dark berry fruit with a splash of fine, dusty black pepper. Silky texture, a full-bodied wine with velvety tannins. Plush berry flavours, this is very nicely balanced with fresh acidity. Long, lingering finish with a pinch of bitter dark chocolate at the tail-end. Impressive. Drink now – 2018. 91/100.
