Intense and lively nose with dominant ripe red fruit, floral and balsamic aromas. Fresh and lively with firm, ripe tannins and well-integrated acidity. Long and lingering finish that offers a balance of freshness and ripeness.

Quinta dos Murças Minas vineyards are located at altitudes between 110m (360 ft)  and 300m (985 ft). South-facing, there are five water springs (in Portuguese, ‘minas’) that help to cool the area and influence the vineyard’s terroir. This is an elegant wine, with a balance of ripe fruit and the characteristic freshness of Quinta dos Murças.

Following a very wet winter and cold spring, the vegetative cycle began two to three weeks later than normal. The summer was hot and dry, accelerating ripening, producing concentrated grapes with good acidity and aromas. The harvest took place between 11th September and 13th September.

The oldest vines were planted in 1987 and the most recent in 2011.

Hand-picked grapes, destemming, crushing, fermentation with indigenous yeasts and temperature control (25ºC – 28ºC) in granite ‘lagares’, foot treading and pressing in an old-style vertical press.

Aged in concrete vats and used French oak casks for 9 months.
