Description

Vinha do Moinho was acquired by Cristiano van Zeller in 2001. Distant from the heart of Quinta Vale D. Maria's estate, this vineyard is divided in two parts: one, facing west, and the other, located on a small hillside, facing south. It is in the latter, the oldest vineyard with more than 80 years, that we find the birthplace of the wine that bares its name. At an altitude of 260 to 305 meters, Vinha do Moinho, comprises a profusion of grape varieties, with a predominance of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Barroca. Harvest after harvest, the fruit of this special vineyard stood out from the other lots at Quinta Vale D. Maria, drawing Cristiano van Zeller's attention to something that he felt was unique.

Tasting

Eye : The color, with nuances of evolution.

Nose : introduces a complex aroma, rich in balsamic, smoky and spice notes, with a background of ripe fruit. 

Mouth : it is full and fruity at the beginning of the tasting. Very balanced, dense and concentrated, the fine, sweet and firm tannins show an extraordinary ageing capacity. Similarly to the movement of water, used in mills, the movement of time, that cradles Vinha do Moinho 2012, irrigates an unmistakable personality and a unique character.

A DNA that is born in the fingerprints of a special terroir, that only time can shape.
