O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2019
Very attractive in aroma, combining mineral notes with citrus notes. It is a well structured white, with some volume of mouth, and quite fresh, thanks to the good acidity it has. It's a balanced white.

Quinta do Mouro
Quinta do Mouro is located at the gates of the city of Estremoz, and belonged for centuries to the Zagalos family, one of the most wealthy in the city. This original “farmhouse” in Alentejo, where the vast lands dominate, has a palatial house from the 16th century. In 1979, when he was only 26 years old, fortune dictated the fate of Miguel Louro at a poker table, among friends, when he had the dilemma of buying a Porsche or Quinta do Mouro. The first acres of vineyards would be planted in 1989, following a failed incursion into cattle ranching, being today one of the region’s most iconic wine producers.
