Casa de Mouraz - Nina 2020
A very light red/ dark rosé made from 50% red and 50% white grapes, all co-planted, co-harvested and co-vinified as per old Portuguese traditions. Features over 20 local grape varieties and mainly coming from very old vineyards. This is a stunning wine that slowl;y reveals itself over the course of an evening. One of those light wines with impressive complexity and length, and that is the result of very gentle macerations to reveal the utmost in provenance.
Made by the wonderful couple Sara Dionisio and Antonio Lopes Ribeiro, who started Casa de Mouraz in 2002 when they moved back from Lisbon to Antonio's native town of Mouraz in the Dão region. They aim to showcase their unique part of the world, and create wines that gently speak of their sandy granitic soils, their microclimate between two mountain ranges, and their unique collective energy.
