In this Matthew Clark Interviews podcast, we sit down with Nuno Cabral of Esporao wines, who is now embarking on the latest Esporao project, developing the historic vineyards of Quinta dos Murças in the Duoro.
The vineyards are planted on schistous soils in the sub-region of Cima Corgo, in the cooler part of the Douro. They are planted, so as to harvest the maximum amount of sunlight; essential to fully ripen the grapes. Some are farmed vertically on slopes that fall steeply down to the river; these offer up spectacular views, but cultivating them is laborious.
