Filipa Pato & William Wouters Dinamica DNMC Baga 2021

Bairrada, Northern Portugal, PortugalThis biodynamic Baga is sourced partially from Filipa and William’s estate vineyards in Ois do Bairro, and partially from other growers in various villages in Bairrada. There’s a mix of bush vines and trellised plants with an average age of 40 years. The younger vines have been propagated by massale selection from the old vines in an effort to maintain diversity and select the best plant material available. Handpicked, this is partial whole cluster and fermented and raised entirely in tank with a very gentle extraction and long (4 week) maceration, adding the fine, firm structure here. Lifted and bright with blackcurrant, wild plum stencilled with thorns and scented with rockrose and pink peppercorns along the buzzy textural and very saline palate. Acidity is crunchy, and tannins are finely downy, all encouraging enjoying liberally now, with a light chill (bonus when you find it in magnum).Tasted: 16 November 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
