Quinta dos Murças VV47 results from the oldest vertical vineyard planted in the Douro, in 1947 (VV47), facing southeast. The highest expression of the terroir, characterized by elegance, balance and complexity.
Hand-picked grapes, destemming, crushing, fermentation with indigenous yeasts and temperature control (25ºC – 28ºC) in granite ‘lagares’, foot treading and pressing in an old-style vertical press.
Aged in used French oak casks for 12 months.
Deep and intense, with violets hues.
Very complex, intense and lively showing mature red fruits, balsamic notes from old vines.
Great balance and elegance, with fine mature tannins and balancing acidity. Long and persistent finish, with potential for great longevity in the bottle.
