From the producer: “Passion for the traditional indigenous grape varietals of Bairrada led Filipa Pato to start her own project in 2001. She works a total of 12 hectares of vineyards scattered in various plots throughout the Bairrada appellation of Portugal. Utilizing biodynamic farming practices and minimal-intervention winemaking, Filipa and her husband, Belgian sommelier and restaurateur William Wouters, produce vinhos autênticos sem maquilagem – ‘Authentic Wines Without Makeup.’”
Baga from different locations gives a more complex wine, since each location has its own expression of the varietal. This is a real terroir driven wine and a good example of Baga, with fruity flavors and soft tannins. Each plot is vinified separately and then blended into a balanced cuvée.
Distinguished and elegant fruit-driven nose with notes of strawberry, damson plum, licorice and hints of black pepper. Fruity and balanced on the palate with a velvety texture which leads to a fresh finish. Pairs well with charcuterie, dried cheeses, and white meats.
