This Bairrada Classic wine is a tribute to the centenary vineyards, matriarchs of the region and witnesses of past times. The grapes are selected from 80 to 120 year old vines from our vineyard in the Cadoiços Valley. Winemaking in “lagar” with foot treading, besides being an old technique, we believe it remains the best way to obtain great wines of this variety. The two-year oak stage and subsequent bottle rest give the elegance and balance needed for a wine to be tasted for many years..
THE 2016 VINTAGE
The year 2016 was characterized by a very cold and rainy spring and a dry and hot summer. The rain reappeared at the end of September, after these grapes were harvested. The high thermal amplitudes of the area and the cool Bairrada nights made it possible to obtain a wine full of freshness, elegance and depth.
