This wine is sourced from the 80-year-old Pintas vineyard, which contains a field blend of over 35 indigenous varieties. The grapes are carefully selected and foot trodden in traditional granite lagares during the maceration and fermentation process. The wine is then aged for 20 months in 70% new and 30% second-passage French oak barriques.
Sandra Tavares da Silva and Jorge Serodio Borges are oenologists and married with each other. One fine day, they decided to make a wine together and they bought an old Port Wine warehouse, in Vale de Mendiz. Wine & Soul was born and so was Pintas, a garage wine whose name was inspired by their restless pointer. Pintas comes from a single 70 years old vineyard, whose ground features and grape varieties (more than 30) allow them to extract marked and defined terroir wines. With 2.5 ha of vineyard in 6 ha of ground, Jorge and Sandra set themselves a new challenge: to produce a high quality white wine, something they both consider to be very complex. Guru is the expression of this challenge.
