Description

Made from grapes originating from Quinta de Baixo's very old vines. It is vinified in the same style as Charme Douro: A short fermentation with full stems in traditional lagares. An outstanding red wine with concentration, fruit, complexity and elegance.

Tasting Notes

Charme Bairrada 2012 is light red in colour and offers a vibrant and deeply complex nose with aromas of green tea leaf as well as earthy notes from the vines' calcareous clay soils. A fresh and still youthful palate provides excellent acidity and quite elegant tannins for the Baga grape variety. A long and crisp finish bears witness to the wine's terroir.
