Quinta da Murta branco 2017

Region: Lisboa

Producer: Quinta da Murta

The French engineer Franck Bodin gave a new direction to his career by taking over Quinta da Murta and becoming a winegrower. He radically changed the practices applied there. The vineyards were converted to biodynamic viticulture and the use of cultivated yeasts and enzymes (which is still the norm in many places, especially for white wines) was immediately stopped. Murta wines today show the qualities of the centuries-old Bucelas appellation in all their splendour.

The wines need a certain amount of time to be appreciated, which is why we are only now proposing the vintage 2015.

Bucelas was for a long time the only region in Portugal to produce white wines. "The Wine Of Shakespeare" is a nod to history. In the 16th century, Bucelas wine was very popular at the royal court of England, a wine called "Charneco" (the name of a town near Bucelas) is mentioned in Shakespeare's play Henry Six, written in 1594. 

The vines are planted on limestone, fossils and marl, on south/south-east facing slopes at an altitude of 250 metres. 

Exuberant and fresh nose with notes of lemon, lime, apple, tropical fruits and a floral and mineral background.The palate is well balanced, creamy and crispy. The finish is long and persistent.
