Mirabilis, as implied by its Latin name, is a wonderful wine. Since 2008, we have studied the possibility of preparing a Great Douro White wine and during a 4-year period we worked meticulously in the endless search for small farmers with old and very old vines. At the same time we monitored several years of study of maturation in bottle of different lots to understand the perfect marriage with the oak barrels. Finally, we decided to take a long trip to Burgundy and managed to achieve the final touch we needed to create a wonderful white wine!
Grape Varieties: Viosinho,Gouveio,Old Vines
Tasting Notes: Mirabilis White is a sublime wine, smooth and crunchy in the mouth, coming from grapes from small, centenary old vines where Viosinho and Gouveio predominate, resulting in a wine of extreme elegance, where freshness and acidity stands out.
Winemaking: Mirabilis, as the Latin name implies, is a wonderful wine. Small, tight bunches and simple berries mean that the production per hectare does not exceed 2300 kg, in soils higher than 500 meters, geologically classified as schist/granitic transition soils. The selected wood is purposely from second and third year, only a small percentage of new wood, not to mark, and slowly integrate the intense fruit. The aging in oak lasts 10 months, with battonage every 15 days during the first 5 months.
