Field blend of red Portuguese varietals. (70-year-old vines and older) Dark spicy mineral, densely packed but with enchanting elegance and balance. Accurately focused in an exciting wild bouquet, with great structure but also elegance. Salt and minerality on the long, lush finish.
Vinification in granite lagares with soft maceration (the grapes are crushed with the feet). Ages for 18 months in French oak barrels (228 litres, various tonneliers).
Jorge Moreira is one of the great winemakers of the newer wine scene in Portugal. He is particularly well known for his work with Quinta de la Rosa where he received international recognition, and now at his own winery, Poeira, located in Provesende in the Pinhão Valley. Poeira means "dusty" and refers to the large billows of dust that dominate this part of Portugal in the hot, dry summer. Jorge farms 9 hectares of vines on steep slopes that rise 600m ASL from the valley below. 2.5 hectares are planted to vines that are over 60-years-old. Jorge farms organically and is a certified biodynamic producer. His winemaking philosophy centers on freshness and fruit, not tannin and oak.
