Vidente Dao Mira do O
Vidente Dao Mira de O
The wine that gave origin to this winery was the "Druida", back in 2012, and all the wines that followed are true to its original idea. The Druids were wise men of Celtic origin who sought to attain spiritual balance through nature's equilibrium. Our wines are just that, a pursuit for balance with the utmost respect for nature. This is a personal project driven by passion for wines, where the grapes are the real stars and wine-making is of minimal intervention. Dão is the main region and base of the Mira do Ó wines, the home of the "Druida" and "Vidente".
VITICULTURE + VINIFICATION
Cold, windy and wet Autumn and winter. Mild spring, dry and hot summer. Cold nights. Soils in this area are mainly granitic, with a fair amount of clay and the surprising presence of pebble stones at the surface. Handpicked grapes, fermentation in tank, aging in used barrels. Natural, slow fermentation of all the varieties mixed in stainless steel tank, at 28oC, with minimal extraction. Total malolactic fermentation in stainless steel. Aged for 18 months in used barrels.
Bright ruby in colour and a nose with hints of cinnamon, cherry, and earthy cocoa with a herbaceous top note. The mouth is very elegant and delicate, with silky but tense tannins that linger through the long after taste.
