The Story

Quinta de Baixo Vinhas Velhas is the result of combining the varieties Maria Gomes and Bical from century-old vineyards with a perfect limestone terroir. Due to the high natural acidity, these vineyards give rise to wines with a pH below 3.0, making possible the malolactic fermentation that takes place in 1000 litres Fuders, with 60 years old, from Mosel. VV represents in a remarkable way the incredible lightness and complexity of Bairrada.

Vintage 2013

2013 was a wet year, with rain during the winter and spring. As a result, the growth occurred two weeks later than the previous year and the whole growing cycle was delayed. The summer was not as hot as usual and the nights were very cold in the last two weeks of August.

The harvest began in late August in old vines. The ripening was very balanced, with a good sugar content in grapes and a relatively high content of malic acid, having given good pHs to the wine, resulting in a total acidity higher than in the previous year. The white wines are balanced and with good freshness.

The V/V white 2013 comes from several parcels of old vines. It was vinified in stainless steel vat, where fermented for 4 weeks and ended the fermentation in Fuders. The malolactic occurred in 1000L used Fuders, where the wine aged for 20 months. It was bottled without filtration.
