Our winemaker José Luís Moreira da Silva focussed on the past, present and future of Quinta dos Murças wines, on a journey through time amongst the aroma and flavours of a place as special as the Douro.
Esporão’s role at Quinta dos Murças began in 2008, with the first wine, which never made it to the market. It was this that made us believe even more firmly in the estate’s potential, because of the wine’s balance of freshness and concentration, which indicated the main characteristics of Murças that we identify with.
“This connection is very important for us, when we think about the future. We don’t want to look ahead without looking back. The past and history drives our innovation and development, and this wine expresses exactly that”. José Luís Moreira da Silva.
Our winemaker has been undertaking a number of experiments with our Douro vineyards and, as a result, has created new wines and “out of the box” projects, such as Orange 2015, Minas 2015 and Margem 2015, which were tasted and left everybody looking forward to more.
