This is a fantastic field blend from Antonio Madeira in the Serra da Estrela sub-region in the Dão. Primarily Alfrocheiro and Touriga Nacional, with several other indigenous varieties that are co-planted on rugged granitic soils. Aging is for 18 months, in old French barrels and 3 months in stainless steel before bottling. The wine is vibrant and balanced, with subtle tannin, and some real material. Though there are some white grapes in the blend, it looks and acts like a red wine, and would be perfect with anything from the grill this summer! Feel free to chill for 15-20 minutes to give it a little extra freshness on the palate.
We love the rich, feral Portuguese variety Baga - the great red grape of the Bairrada DOC, which abuts Portugal's Dão region and enjoys a mild, maritime climate. Sidónio de Sousa's Baga is as good as it gets, from 90-year-old vines, fermented whole-cluster and raised for 12 months in ancient Portuguese oak. Pepper and rose petals on the nose, with wild flavors of black currant, red currant, oregano, and rye combine with pine needles, purple flowers, and funky damp earth. It's hard not to dream of roasted or grilled meat with this wine! Ariana Rolich
