Vadio Tinto 2018
Cribbed from Luis' notes:
Originating from several vineyards of Baga planted exclusively in clay-limestone soils, it expresses the Atlantic character of Bairrada wines and the typical texture of limestone-grown Baga.
Each plot of vineyard is harvested manually at different periods in order to reach optimum maturation levels. As soon as they reach the cellar, the grapes are destemmed and taken to small deposits. In order to better express the identity, the fermentation is conducted by indigenous yeasts and the extraction is very soft. It ages in used barrels for a minimum period of 18 months.
The nose shows the classic elegance of Baga and the freshness characteristic of Bairrada. The palate is delicate where the acidity shines and persists accompanied by very soft and polished tannins.
