A pale and bright lemon-yellow colour characterises this wine’s appearance. Its subtle bouquet of aromas offers notes of tobacco, apricot and citrus, with fleeting floral nuances and aromatic hints of herbs which lend the wine complexity and sophistication. This is a serious and unique white wine that particularly impresses with its structured yet elegant palate, outstanding acidity, and saline touch – you are immediately transported to the limestone soils of the Bairrada region. The finish is long, expressive, and full of spice.
2020 was a year with some rainfall and an intensely cold March, which resulted in slow growth.
However, thanks to a warm spring, the grapes matured quickly, leading to an earlier harvest.
Picking began with the white grape varieties on 26 August and ended with the reds on 26 September. It was a good year, with well-balanced acidities. Although alcohol levels were higher than the previous year, we were able to maintain the freshness and elegance that characterise the wines of the Quinta de Baixo.
