Albariño Blend, Miguel Louro 'Apelido'
The nose has a complex aroma filled with fruit, slight floral notes and a mineral touch to give it a more serious tone. It is alive in the mouth, with strong acidity prolonging the tasting that ends with a mineral touch.
Miguel Louro began his eponymous wine project in 2010 to fulfill his desire to create wines that respect the deep history and tradition of the Alentejo region but do so without make-up or intervention. This personal project reflects his family origins having grown up in the Alentejo surrounded by wine culture at Quinta do Mouro, his family’s farm. After studying Agronomical Engineering at the University of Lisbon, Miguel completed internships in the Douro Valley and gained international experience making wines in Italy and Germany.
Miguel returned to the Alentejo and planted 5 hectares of vineyards in Estremoz, where he seeks to produce wines with freshness in an area known for great terroir. The vineyard is farmed with organic practices to promote and ensure the health of his land and surrounding environment. He takes a strictly minimal approach in the winery, producing wines low in alcohol content and full of the character representing where they are from.
