Answer: B) a varietal
Touriga Nacional is Portugal’s gem like Pinot Noir is to Burgundy. Most people will know this grape from its attendance in Port but more and more table wine is being made from it. From this low-yielding, small grape comes a wine that has structure, body, high tannins and concentrated black fruits. Look for wines from Dão or Douro.
