Filipa Pato Post Quercus Baga Tinto 2022


This authentic “Post Quercus” baga (After Oak Age) has certainly no makeup!

Grape Varieties: Baga

Tasting Note: Brilliant cherry red colour with a present viscosity. The nose is straight forward almost purely fruit driven, it reminds small red stonefruit with a hint of black pepper. The taste is delicate and elegant, very juicy, attractive and it has a lingering and teasing aftertaste.

Gastronomy: A pure “vin de plaisir” which will accompany very nicely grilled fish and seafood and simple quality meatdishes with fresh and crunchy vegetables to accent the pureness of the wine. This Baga is also a good contender to creamy cheeses.

Vinification: The grapes are handpicked from different vineyards in Bairrada. Partly destemmed, fermented in amphorae (500 – 700l) with very little extraction and long maceration on the skins. After the fermentation the wine is aged in amphorae for 6 months.

Winemaker’s Notes: We are inspired by the Romans, who left their legacy in the region (clays jars). Part of the soil of Bairrada (Barro=clay) is clay. We wanted to recreate this old tradition. The micro-oxygenation through the clay of the amphorae helps to soften down the tannins of the Baga and explore even more the pureness of Baga.

Ageing: Matured 2 months in bottle prior to release.

Storage Time Recommended: 2 – 5 years
