Mira do Ó Caminhante 2020

Nuno Mira do Ó is simply a producer passionate about authentic wines that are able to translate the “terroir” where they come from, made with indigenous grape varieties, with minimal intervention and respect for nature, with the potential to age and especially that provide pleasure to those who drink them …

An agronomist and winemaker, he started making wines in 2001 and walking through vineyards from north to south in search of understanding the soils, climates, grape varieties and cultural practices. In 2009 he started the first personal project in Bairrada with his friend and also winemaker João Soares, the V Puro project. In 2012 he started the Dão adventure, with his friend and colleague João Corrêa, that would become better known as Druida wines, the brand of the emblematic Encruzado wine that was launched with this name, born in the fantastic vineyards of Nuno Bico Matos. Under the brand of Mira do Ó wines, the wine family in Dão grew and in 2016 it extended to Bucelas, the region where Nuno had started making wines and where he always wanted to return. In 2018 another challenge arises, this time alongside his friend and wine producer Joana Santiago, SOU Quinta de Santigo & Mira do Ó was the opportunity to explore the “terroir” of Monção and Melgaço and to interpret it in a different way.

The nose announces freshness with notes of fresh cherry, violets and spices. This melds with plenty of vegetal and mineral hints giving the wine tension.The palate gives excellent texture and fruit intensity, the tannins are very present but very fine and the acidity carries the fruit to a long and elegant finish.
