Filipa Pato Nossa Calcário Bical 2020

Bairrada, Northern Portugal, PortugalThese biodynamic Bical grapes come from the chalky clays of Óis do Bairro vineyard, and 40 year old vines. It was whole bunch, native ferment into 500-600L pipas, where it remains on lees, without bâtonnage, for 8 months. Pouring a deeper lemon hue, this streams wild herbs, lemon verbena, white blossoms, lemongrass, green apple along a taut, saline palate, laced with lemon pith and peel. Beautiful energy in this slender wine.Tasted: 29 August 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
