Description

In the foothills of the Serra de Estrela (Star Mountain), Quinta das Maias was first established in 1893. It is now a registered organic estate, capturing the freshness and focus that this vineyard offers. A haven for the Jaen variety, known in Spain as Tinta Mencia in Bierzo, Maias is a unique terroir for this fascinating cepage. The name of the estate derives from the Portuguese word for the month of May, which is when the Weaver's Broom (known as Giesta, but here as Maias) flowers here. Under the same ownership as Quinta dos Roques.

Starts stark and closed, tentatively mineral, white fruit and vegetable note. Much more expressive in the mouth, light and soft, with great taste, acidity in the point, creamy, but with a lot of claw, end of mouth mineral.
