Producer Notes 2018
Viosinho, Gouveio and centuries-old vines
Mirabilis is made with grapes from small centuries-old vineyards where Viosinho and Gouveio predominate, but also many other varieties of low production, almost nonexistent in the region.
Small, tight bunches and simple berries, make the production per hectare not exceed 2300kg, in soils higher than 500 meters, geologically classified as transition shale / granitic soils, in the parishes of Vilar de Maçada, Cabeda, Tabuaço and Candedo. They give musts a sublime genuineness, where freshness and aroma are accentuated naturally. The selected wood is purposely from the second and third year, only a small percentage of new wood, not to mark and better integrate slowly the intense fruit, focusing mainly on French and Hungarian oak, resulting in a wine of extreme elegance, where the freshness, structure and acidity intertwine.
