O Produtor, tasting note published in July 12th 1905

Elegant and complex nose with dominance of mineral notes of chalk, white flowers, beeswax and citrus. A few hints of spices like nutmeg and coriander seed. Mouth of great structure, texture and freshness with a very long but very involved acidity.

Mira

This wine is born from two small vineyards in the Bucelas valley. A floodplain vineyard in a very cold area on deep clay-limestone soils and another vineyard on a more calcareous and sunny slope. It is a raw approach to the unique “terroir” of this region, focusing on artisanal winemaking, devoid of technology and seeking the purest expression of Arinto de Bucelas.

It was a year with a warm winter but with a cool late spring and summer, which allowed for slow maturation and excellent levels of natural acidity and aromatic elegance. These grapes were harvested by hand in mid-September and the result is a wine full of complexity, texture and freshness.

Mira do Ó

Old vines, century-old vines, hillside vines, lowland vines, clay or stony vines, all produce different wines.
It has been our mission to interpret all the differences that exist in the vines and transpose them into the different wines. Our major focus is on old vines of Baga, in the case of the reds, and Bical in the case of the whites, although in some vineyards there are blends with other local grape varieties.
The oenology is minimalist in terms of intervention but quite differentiated and adapted to each of the different vineyards, i.e., the different plots also have a different approach in the winery in order to better reveal what we believe to be their purest expression.
We want wines that are tense, fresh and complex, with a great connection to the terroir and a unique personality and that, fundamentally, will give us pleasure for many years.
