This Project was born from the will of three winemakers, Jorge Moreira, Francisco Olazabal and Jorge Serôdio Borges who wanted to make a wine together.
About the Vineyard
The Dão wine region was chosen due to our shared admiration for old wines and was born during a tasting of wines from the ’60s and 70’s decade, which surprised us with their elegance and freshness. The Identity and complexity of these wines are remarkable and served as an element of inspiration to create our MOB wines, whether white or red.
The vineyards, in a total of fifteen hectares, ten located in Seia and five composed by old vines in Gouveia, are situated in one of the colder sites of the region, in the foothills of “Serra da Estrela”, the conjunction of altitude, soils, and the grape varieties of the property convinced us that it would be the right place to move forward.
This wine is fermented in small stainless steel tanks and oak barrels. It is aged for eight months with slight battonage.
A beautiful golden color given by the maturation and richness of Encruzado and Bical grapes. It subtle aromatics are dominated by a complex bouquet of white fruit, herbs, and minerality. In the mouth, it has an opulent impact, but then thanks to its great acidity become very well balanced and long.
M.O.B. Lote 3 flirts with the past, with its complex and austere aromas not falling into the mainstream light aromatic whites.
