VADIO BAIRRADA TINTO 2012
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.
Lovely floral cherry and berry fruits nose with a hint of stewed plum. The palate is supple and really elegant with lovely expressive, pure, minerally cherry and plum fruit.
