Quinta do Monte d’Oiro Aurius 2004

A blend of the majestic Portuguese Touriga Nacional with Syrah and Petit Verdot. With soft tannins, elegant and silky notes and still with a colour that doesn’t look like it’s 16 years old.

Quinta do Monte d'Oiro

Quinta do Monte d'Oiro ('Hill of Gold Estate') is located in the Lisbon region, 50 km north of the Portuguese capital, nestled between the Montejunto mountains and 20 kilometers from the Atlantic ocean. The terroir is a combination of limestone and clay soil, wiht a Mediterranean micro-climate (similar to the Rhône's Mistral), enabling slow ripening, natural acidity, moderate alcohol level and smooth tannins.
