This wine is mainly made from Baga, the most widely planted varietal in the Bairrada Region, in Portugal. Famous for high levels of acidity and tannins, when it comes to rosé, this grape variety lends a fresh acidity and a strong character to produce wines with great personality.
For this particular wine, the grapes are harvested early when they have nice fresh varietal flavours, bright acidity and less developed tannins. Gentle pressing followed by a slow fermentation at low temperature retains much of the young and fresh characteristics and leads to the production of a clean and delicate base wine. These base wines then undergo a secondary fermentation in tank at 16°C. It is this secondary fermentation that adds the distinctive sparkle and its trademark creamy and complex finish. The final wine is cold stabilised and bottled.
