O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2019
It is a wine with a beautiful golden color, with a nose full of aroma, with notes of powder and minerality to appear between the fruity and the floral. In the mouth, it is very rich, with great texture and very lively acidity. A white with a strong personality to discover in the next few years.
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. White M.O.B wine was fermented in small stainless steel vats and oak barrels with 30% new and the rest used. He spent 8 months with slight battonage.
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.
