Quinta dos Murças Minas, Douro

Quinta dos Murças Minas, Douro

The Minas red is made from grapes from the estate?s vineyards that are located close to the right bank of the River Douro. These generally face south, and produce wines with a concentrated and rich profile, supported by a freshness; in part created by the springs that run through the vineyards that impart a cooling influence. The grapes employed include Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão and Tinta Francisca. After a hand harvest and fermentation with indigenous yeast in granite tanks the wine is pressed in an old-style vertical press, prior to nine months ageing in French oak and concrete. Intense and concentrated this wine shows dominant, ripe, red fruit, floral aromas and a balsamic note.
