About

90

"This wine is made from a single vineyard that is situated between 1,200 and 1,600 feet in elevation. It is poised between structured black fruits and firm tannins, which gives the wine fine potential. Drink from 2020 to allow for the fruit to broaden out."

Product Description:

The vineyards are planted in schistose soils both vertically and on terraces at altitudes between 360 ft and 985 ft. South-facing, there are five water springs (called minas) that help to cool the area and influence the vineyard’s terroir. This is a concentrated wine, with a balance of ripe fruit and the characteristic freshness of Quinta dos Murças.
