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 2014

As in 2013, the winter in Bairrada was severe, long and with heavy rainfall. An almost non-existing spring and a summer with temperatures around 30°C, made difficult the disease control and the ripening. 

Ripening control began in mid-August, tasting and checking the grapes. The harvest of the whites began on the 28th August in excellent weather conditions, and finished on the 10th September. The VV 2014 was vinified in stainless steel vats, where it fermented for 4 weeks, ending the fermentation in Fuders. The malolactic occurred in the same 1000L used Fuders, where the wine aged for 20 months. It was bottled without filtration.
