Respecting the winemaking tradition of the oldest demarcated region in the world, these wines are produced using native grape varieties, created to express the vibrant aromas of the most traditional Douro grapes, showcasing their potential for producing balanced wines that are excellent partners for food.
Integrated Production (certificate)
Winter and spring were rainy and cold, while the hot and dry summer that followed lasted until mid-September, when the region experienced heavy rainfall. By this time, the harvest had finished and the grapes were perfectly ripe.
AVERAGE AGE OF VINES
Grapes picked and selected by hand, pneumatic pressing, temperature-controlled fermentation (12ºC to 14ºC), aged on fine less (sur lie).
DOURO – ALTITUDE – FRESHNESS
At the edge of Quinta dos Murças’ boundaries, we find a valley formed by steep slopes. In this place, primarily north-facing and more protected from the sun, when the wind blows, we can hear it whistle.
Assobio comes from vineyards such as these, from plots boasting unique characteristics and planted at higher altitudes. The product of the region’s most traditional grape varieties, our fresh and versatile red, white and rosé Assobios are distinctly gastronomic wines.
