Muxagat OS Xistos Altos Rabigato
WINE TYPE: White
APPELLATION: Douro DOC
Winemakers Mateus Nicolau de Almeida and Eduardo Lopes began Muxagat Vinhos in the village of Muxagata in 2002 in a garage, which they quickly outgrew. The next year they took over the granite cellars of an abandoned winery in the nearby town of Meda. The winery is now led by Susana Lopes, along with Ana Sofia Silva and well-known winemaker Luis Seabra. Muxagat takes full advantage of the steep-sloped vineyards and cooler climate of the remote upper Douro region. to produce big, yet fresh wines showcasing the region and its grapes.
This wine is bright and complex with strong character. Aromatics of citrus and orange blossoms with strong minerality and a touch of smoke. The palate is complex with stony fruit and spice with amazing minerality and just enough minerality to keep it fresh.
