"Tasting of the tough land from which it comes, this is a firmly structured and intense wine, packed with berry fruits, layered with wood and spice. Made by Mateus Nicolau de Almeida, grandson of the creator of Portugal's legendary Barca Velha wine. Age for five years and more. -RV" Cellar Selection (04/11)
"Muxagat is a project between two grape growers from the Douro Valley, Mateus Nicolau de Almeida and Eduardo Lopes, with the goal of producing high quality wines. Muxagat Vinhos started as a small garage winery in 2002, in the tiny village of Muxagata, outside the town of Vila Nova de Foz Coa. The following year the company moved to Meda, to an old traditional winery with granite lagars."
"The new winery is located at a higher altitude, allowing for cooler temperatures, ideal for aging wine. The first Muxagat harvest in 2002 produced 5,000 bottles of red wine. In 2003, they produced 6,000 bottles of white wine. The goal is to gradually increase quantities to 50,000 bottles a year while still producing great quality wines."
"The winemaking responsibilities belong to Mateus Nicolau de Almeida. The vineyards are situated in the Douro Superior section of the Douro Valley, in the northwest of Portugal near the Spanish border, which is famous for its Port wine. The soil is made of schist and the climate conditions allow for very low yields, around 2.2 tons per acre.
"The vineyard is planted in terraces with the vines and average age of 40 years old for the white, and ten for the red. The grape varieties are indigenous to Portugal; the white grapes are mainly Rabigato, while Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cao, and Tinto Roriz make up the reds." -Importer
