O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2017
This red has a slightly loaded color. It does not have much alcohol content, it is fresh and easy to drink like the wines of the past but it has the aromatic beauty, the fruitiness in the mouth and the balance provided by the viticulture and winemaking.

The vineyards, in a total of fifteen hectares, ten located in Seia and five in Gouveia composed by old vines, are located in one of the colder places of the region, at the base of the Serra da Estrela, the conjunction of altitude, soils and the varieties of grapes from the estate convinced us that it would be the right place to move on. This Lot 3 seeks to be an old Dão with a modern approach. It comes from the three vineyards located Gouveia and Seia. It was vinified in stainless steel tanks, with soft extractions. It aged for 12 months in used oak barrels of 225 liters.
This project – M.O.B. (Moreira, Olazabal e Borges) – was born from the will of three winemakers, Jorge Moreira, Francisco Olazabal and Jorge Serôdio Borges who wanted to make a wine together. The Dão wine region was chosen due to our common admiration for old wines and was born during a tasting of wines from the ’60s and 70’s decade, which surprised us with their elegance and freshness. The Identity and complexity of these wines are, in fact, remarkable and served as an element of inspiration to create our MOB wines, whether white or red.
