Murças Reserve 2011 was produced with grape varieties such as Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Sousão, among others. After foot treading and fermentation in granite tanks with indigenous yeasts, the wine was aged for around 12 months in used French and American oak barrels, followed by extended bottle ageing. That year’s mild summer and cold evenings produced high-quality grapes that highlight the complex and intense aroma of a concentrated wine with balanced acidity and well-integrated, ripe tannins.

In the final quarter of 2016, Esporão extended its Douro portfolio. In addition to Murças Reserva and the ports from Quinta dos Murças, there are now three new wines: Murças Minas, Murças Margem and Murças VV47.
