Vadio Tinto Bairrada DOC 2016

Tannic and Fruity

The Atlantic char¬≠ac¬≠ter of Baga grapes is ful¬≠ly expressed at the Vadio Win¬≠ery in Por¬≠tu¬≠gal. Three small vine¬≠yards with fruit¬≠ful har¬≠vests‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČthat‚Äôs the trea¬≠sure behind Vadio Winery.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Baga grapes har¬≠vest¬≠ed from clay-lime¬≠stone soils cre¬≠ate the typ¬≠i¬≠cal Bair¬≠ra¬≠da wine fla¬≠vors. Through man¬≠u¬≠al har¬≠vest¬≠ing at dif¬≠fer¬≠ent times of dur¬≠ing the har¬≠vest sea¬≠son, the wine¬≠mak¬≠ers at Vadio are able to con¬≠trol the mat¬≠u¬≠ra¬≠tion lev¬≠els present in their wines. Extrac¬≠tion is done very gen¬≠tly, and the bar¬≠rels for their tin¬≠to wines are aged for a min¬≠i¬≠mum of 18 months. This wine is fresh and del¬≠i¬≠cate on the palate, with an acid¬≠i¬≠ty that shines per¬≠sis¬≠tent¬≠ly, accom¬≠pa¬≠nied by soft, pol¬≠ished tan¬≠nins. It tastes of cher¬≠ries and mixed berries, with a hint of stewed plum. 

PAIR­INGS

In Por¬≠tu¬≠gal, Bair¬≠ra¬≠da wines are the sin¬≠gu¬≠lar part¬≠ner for the nation¬≠al fish, bacal¬≠hau. These wines are also often drank with octo¬≠pus or squid in red wine sauce or fresh grilled tuna. If you pre¬≠fer meats, this is an offal-friend¬≠ly wine, espe¬≠cial¬≠ly with kid¬≠ney or liv¬≠er. Pork roasts and lamb stews also go well with this wine‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČand if you‚Äôre look¬≠ing for that bit of dairy, bring out a block of blue cheese. We rec¬≠om¬≠mend Long Claw¬≠son Pot¬≠ted Blue Stil¬≠ton DOP

LOCAL TO THE REGION

Vadio Win¬≠ery grows about 70 per¬≠cent of their wines right in their vine¬≠yards, but because of high demand, they also take in Baga grapes har¬≠vest¬≠ed from small¬≠er grow¬≠ers in the area. Their goal is to be com¬≠plete¬≠ly self-suf¬≠fi¬≠cient by 2030. And they‚Äôre not just big on pro¬≠tect¬≠ing their wines; Vadio also con¬≠tributes to the main¬≠te¬≠nance of region‚Äôs bio¬≠di¬≠ver¬≠si¬≠ty, car¬≠ing for the sur¬≠round¬≠ing flo¬≠ra and encour¬≠ag¬≠ing nat¬≠ur¬≠al, organ¬≠ic tech¬≠niques in their vine¬≠yards to keep from pol¬≠lut¬≠ing the area.

Storage Instructions

Store unopened red wines in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from con¬≠stant vibra¬≠tion. Keep your bot¬≠tle hor¬≠i¬≠zon¬≠tal in a wine rack or cel¬≠lar to retain the moist¬≠ness of the cork. The ide¬≠al tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture for stor¬≠age is between 16 to 18¬įC. Once opened, a bot¬≠tle will be good for 3 to 5 days stand¬≠ing upright in the refrigerator.
