Vadio / Bairrada Tinto / 750mL
Winemaking process: The grapes were handpicked and crushed to our one tonne open top fermenters. The natural or 'wild' yeasts present on the grape skins were allowed to complete the fermentation and cap/skin management was controlled by hand with a cap plunger. Matured in 225L French and American oak barrels for 18 months, followed by 18 months in bottle before market release.
Winemaker Comments Visual: Dense and dark ruby in color
Aroma: Great finesse and complexity, suggestions of red berry fruits with cedar edge
Taste: Robust tannins, balanced with the acidity, providing structure and backbone for extended bottle ageing.
Food pairing: Chanfana roasted goat or creamy cheeses.
