Intense ruby colour. Fruity aromas and flavours. It presents nuances of red fruits and dark chocolate. In the mouth presents it self as a powerful wine, elegant, balanced, full-bodied and with a persistent ending.
Bacalhôa Baga was born in an ideal terroir for the Baga grape variety (soils clay-limestone and exposure to the West). In the 2017 harvest, a slow maturation was achieved, with the year progressing in the best way possible – sunny but without too much heat and despite some precipitation during the beginning of the harvest season we managed to obtain a very ripe and healthy fruit. This was followed by a traditional vinification with cold and long pre-fermentation maceration cuvaison that allowed to obtain a wine intense in color, aroma, flavor and very elegant. A 14-month ageing period in new 300 liters barrels of French and Russian oak was the last step before bottling. 3363 bottles of 0.75 liters were bottled in 2nd September 2019.
