O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2018
It is a wine with a beautiful golden color given by the maturation and richness of the grapes Encruzado and Bical. The subtle aromas are dominated by a complex bouquet of white fruits, herbs and minerality. In the mouth it has an opulent impact, but thanks to its great acidity it becomes very balanced and long.

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. The M.O.B red lot 3 was fermented in small stainless steel vats and oak barrels. He spent eight months in barrel, with slight battonage. This red “blinks” the past with its complex and austere aromas that do not fit into the conventional light aromatic whites.
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.
