Bone dry, elegant pink magic wine from the inimitable Filipa Pato. The best value for sparkling wine anywhere on the planet too!
Production, Vinification technics:
Traditional method, second fermentation in bottle, unfiltered and unfined to maintain the maximum natural flavours and maintain the quality of bubbles in the wine.
Origin and classification:
Vinho de Mesa, Rosé sparkling wine extra brut from Bairrada, Portugal. A very old region of glowing valleys, since centuries known for the production of wines of excellent quality of Baga and Bical. The rural scenery is dominated by the Caramulo mountain.
Chalky clay midslopes from the Jurassic Inferior with eastern orientation to the sun and a very intense Atlantic influence.
Winemaker ́s notes:
The grapes for the sparkling wines are harvested from different locations. The harvest starts already in August to maintain the fresh and fruity character of the grapes. This way we always have the natural acidity which we love. The first fermentation starts with the natural yeast of the grapes. There is no dosage done, so the wines remain dry.
A clear salmon rosé colour with fine bubbles.
The nose is very expressive with hints of strawberries, pomegranate and anise.
The mouth is refined, creamy, relatively smooth and has a very present minerality. The middle palate is fruitdriven and the aftertaste is dry and refreshing.
A perfect aperitif and excellent with oriental and asiatic cuisine.
Filipa Pato and William Wouters is a magical wife and husband collaboration.
Our philosophy is simple: create authentic wines without make-up, they express the true nature of the vineyards from which they come.
We focus on indigenous grapes only. Baga, Bical, Arinto, Cercial and Maria Gomes create soulful wines from vineyard sites with soils, microclimats and aspect ideal for growing our exquisite wine grapes with biodymanic viticultural practices. In the winery we gently handle the grapes, minimal intervention and strict monitoring of the wine allow our grapes to express themselves fully.
Ultimately we create "terroir" wines by uniting knowledge, art and nature to produce "withoutmake-up", each wine with its own character.
