The Story

Quinta dos Murças is located on steep slopes at high altitudes in the Douro Valley which is the world’s oldest demarcated wine region. The region’s climate is cooler than other parts in the Douro which creates higher levels of acidity. The wine’s name ‘Assobio’ is Portuguese for whistle and is named after the wind that whistles over the vines. The winery produces wines made from native grapes and aim to create versatile wines that go well with food.


M+Q Notes

Made from a blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz. 20% of the wine was aged in French oak barrels for 6 months with the other portion in temperature controlled vats. Complex flavours of dark cherry, black currant, plum and savoury notes. Medium bodied with prominent acidity and plush tannins.
