2005 Quinta das Bageiras "Garrafeira" Vinho Branco Bairrada

SKU #1075534

A blend of Bical and Maria Gomes, this is one exciting dry white, with electrifying fruit, minerality and acidity which suggest that. Delicious as this wine may be now, it has some more years of positive evolution should you want to lay down several bottles. Truly a distinctive, delicious white from the continually underrated wine producing country of Portugal.

Those who have an opportunity to taste and savor this extraordinary wine should not hesitate, for it harbors distinctive flavors unique to two lesser-known white varieties found in the under-rated Bairrada region in northern Portugal. The term 'garrafeira' refers to a reserve or special bottling with old vine fruit, and for whites to qualify they must traditionally be aged for at least 12 months, much of it on the lees. With pronounced green plum and citrus flavors upon a subtle creamy palate, this special wine can be cellared for several years to enhance its delicious nutlike aromas. A serious wine for those in search of a singular experience.

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
