This lighter, shining red is 40-100 year old baga vines from the limestone laced, clay soils of Bairrada. Native ferment and aging in stainless preserves the purity of fruit and precision afforded from soulful old vines on these soils. Wild plum, raspberry is threaded with scrubby herbs and bushy rockrose. Acidity is crunchy bright, and tannins are whisper slight, guiding this to a pink peppercorn dusted, mineral-humming finish. Serve with a light chill.
