Baga ao Sol 2015

Signature Series

Varieties: 100% Baga - Alentejana

Year: 2015

Identity: Charismatic and famous for its freshness and rusticity the grape Baga is the symbol of both a style of wine and of an entire wine region. This "Baga Alentejana", on the other hand, tests the grape further south, where schist soils, sun and heat, allow a different level of maturation. The result? It is Baga like we have never tasted before, remaining true to its identity.

Alcohol: 14,0%

Denomination: Vinho Regional Alentejano

Viticulture: All our grapes come from the highest quality vineyards of the Alentejo region, south of Portugal. The agriculture is sustainable, the production is controlled and quality is improved by removing secondary branches and pruning bunches. The vineyards are grown on very poor soil of schist or granite origin, naturally producing very concentrated grapes. The aromatic profile is further enhanced by cultural practices such as defoliation, dawning and weeding of green curls.

Vinification: All bunches entering the winery are passed over a sorting table and subjected to intensive quality control. The grapes are gently crushed and moved by gravity into temperature regulated vats. Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation occur naturally with no inoculation.
