Vinification of the Lagar de Baixo from Quinta de Baixo
This red wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, namely Baga. Only the best grapes were used for this exceptionally well-balanced single-varietal wine from Quinta de Baixo. After the grape harvest, the grapes are immediately taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. This is followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks and large wooden barrels at controlled temperatures. Once fermentation is complete, the Lagar de Baixo can continue to harmonize on the fine lees for 22 months.
