O Produtor, tasting note published in April 5th 2023

This wine has a yellow colour with bright citrus highlights. On the nose it shows balsamic aromas, with notes of citrus peel, melon, pear and roses. It has a fresh, mineral and full-bodied mouthfeel, with a very long and refined finish

Casa de Mouraz

From old vines, with grape varieties blended and vinified at the same time. A great blended wine in the purest Dão tradition, including about 15 different varieties. Great body, great structure and acidity on point, in a perfect balance so characteristic of the region.

Vineyard Several plots of vines, with granitic soil and ages between 40 – 50 years.

Manual harvest in mid-September.

Vinification After crushing the whole grapes, decanted for 24 hours. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats for about 12 weeks at controlled temperature. The wine aged for 8 months on its fine lees and was then racked (“battonage sur lies”).

Casa de Mouraz

Mouraz is António’s birthplace, a village where his family has been cultivating vineyards in a holistic and ecological way for several generations.
The quinta is spread over several vineyards with different soils, altitudes and surroundings, on a total of 25 hectares of land. Old vineyards with about 50 years old and recently planted vineyards coexist with the pine, oak, chestnut and cork-tree forests, in a landscape marked by gentle hillsides cut by small streams. The predominant soils are granite and altitudes vary between 200 and 400 metres. The grape varieties are exclusively Portuguese, with predominance of the typical Dão grape varieties such as Touriga-Nacional, Tinta-Roriz, Alfrocheiro, Jaen, Água-Santa or Baga (in the reds), Encruzado, Malvasia-Fina, Bical and Cerceal (in the whites). All our vineyards are organically farmed and have been certified by ECOCERT since 1996. In 2006, we started working with biodynamic preparations and practices. In the winery the vinifications are made by vineyards, usually planted with mixed grape varieties, with the aim of seeking the essence of each terroir. In 2009 we joined the prestigious group of biodynamic producers La Renaissance des Appellations.
