Filipa Pato & William Wouters - Baga 2018
Producer: Filipa Pato & William Wouters
Wine name: Nossa Calcario
ABV: 12.5

As the name suggests, this is a baga grown on calcareous soils.

Relatively shy on the nose, but with some swirling you’ll get some crushed blackcurrant and a subtle floral note.
Tight, lively and pure-fruited on the attack, with a burst of cassis and bilberry fruit, a bit of iodine and even a lick of orange zest.

Beautiful sharp acidity, tannins which – by Baga’s standards – have been nicely tamed and such an amazing sense of lifeforce.

A stunning expression of this grape variety, no surprise from Filipa and William – and one which really craves a bit more bottle age, in my opinion.
