MR Premium Red 2012 is a tribute wine that is only released in exceptional years. It is the epitome of the potential of our vineyard in tune with the know-how acquired over the years. 2012 was considered an exceptional year resulting in this unique wine, fruit of a precision viticulture and oenology that incessantly seeks the detailed manifestation of the terroir through clusters and vine stocks that, for many reasons, had a different behaviour, thus affecting its concentration and richness. The tasting of this wine demonstrates the result of the expression of a selection of micro-terroirsterroir

Tasting Notes

MR Premium White is a tribute wine with personality and a serious profile that reveals all the passion for the unique terroir of the blocks that gave origin to it. Without revealing the percentage of each variety, it is a white wine to be stored resulting from a careful selection of the best barrels of white grapes found in Monte da Ravasqueira. Once selected and barrels closed, the wine remained for a full year in total rest, without any external influence and with total freedom of evolution, a concept that makes it unique.

Tasting Notes
It is rich in notes of lime and stone fruits, presenting itself as mineral and light in kerosene. In tasting, it proves to be very rich, with a crunchy acidity. Notes of brioche, orange blossom, volume and a long finish with a mineral texture. To be drunk at a temperature of 14ºC. It demonstrates all of its qualities at table, contrasting with most other white wines.

As a result of numerous experiences, this Premium MR Rosé was born, whose vivacity is prolonged in time. A wine that stages for six months in barrels of French oak on the lees after 16 days fermenting in barrels with daily battonage during the first two months.

Tasting Notes
With an old-world profile and salmon coloured, it proves to be elegant and superb in texture, with delicate fruit and minerality. In the nose, it is perfumed, floral with light smoky notes, white chocolate and white cherry. In the tasting, it is full of texture and finesse, dry, mineral, juicy, and long. It aged for six months in new barrels of French oak at low temperatures.
