A truly exceptional and unique wine, Mira Do O – Vidente Tinto 2016 is a blend of 5 native Portuguese grape varieties; Jaen, Alfrocheiro, Tinta Pinheira, Touriga National and Tinta Roriz. It shows a multitude of red fruits, dried herbs and a lovely smokey character. The flavours are tied together with textured tannins and a long, savoury finish.
A rich red that would go very well with game and spicy meat dished, Moroccan food or meat pastas and chilli.
More about the producer
Nuno Mira do Ó is the viticulturalist and winemaker behind Druida and Vidente and creates handcrafted wines in the historic Dão region. The Druida label harks back to the ancient Celtic druids, wise men and philosophers who sought spiritual equilibrium between man and nature, and it’s in a similar spirit that Nuno aims to make his wine. Grapes are grown by Nuno Matos at Quinta da Turquide in Silgueiros at an altitude of 500 metres on granite-rich soils and subject to a large temperature shifts as a result of the Serra do Caramulo from the west and Serra da Estrela from the south-east. Nuno truly makes some of the most remarkable wines from a remarkable place.
