WHAT MAKES THIS WINE UNIQUE?This is an opportunity to taste a perfectly aged, mature Bairrada, showcasing the capacity for longevity that this region is known for. A library release from the winery itself, with the bottles kept in pristine condition for decades, these wines show a complexity that cannot be derived in any other way.
RATING HISTORY:1996 92WA
GRAPE:90% Baga, 5% Castelao nacional and 5% Moreto. Vines planted in 1980. Tended in clay and limestone soil at 50m (164 ft) elevation. The vineyards are planted in Bairrada - The place of clay. The area has a mild, maritime climate with abundant rainfall, which can make the rot-prone Baga a difficult variety to grow.
VINIFICATION AND AGING:Open top, extended skin fermentation. 24 months on cement tanks, filtered and bottled. Bottles come to us straight from the winery.
TASTING NOTES:Intense tannins give incredible structure and propensity to age balanced out with fresh acidity.
