Mux Tinto is sourced from two parcels with schistous soils, one at an altitude of 250 meters in Foz Coa, facing north. The other is at an altitude of 550 meters in Meda facing south. The wine, which is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Sousao, is crushed by foot in traditional granite lagares. It is fermented in steel tanks with indigenous yeasts, after which the wine is aged in Austrian and French oak barrels for 14 months.
|This wine pairs well with roast beef, magret de canart, and brie or camembert cheese.
