Território Vivo Baga

29.00

This ”Território Vivo” is a delicate Baga, it reflects the true term ”living Terroir”. The heritage of old vineyards of the emblematic Baga grape is a richness to be relished. Some of the vines are 80 years old. The subsoils are chalky clay and the vineyards are South East oriented on fairly steep slopes.

This particular vintage has fantastic story that could’ve gone South and thus an unforgettable harvest. They had an attack of rabbits on all of their old vines of Baga. They ate all of the grapes up to 30cm high of the ground. Inedvertently this produced high quality juice but left Filipa and William with the tiniest crops. Producing wine close to nature without pesticides and herbicides can be quite a challenge, certanly when the territory is quite alive!!

Serve it with elegant glasses at the temperature of 16-18c and it is highly recommended to pair it with refined foods( not too spicy), Fillet of beef, veal, pigeon, duck and creamy cheeses.
