100% Baga sourced partially from Filipa and William’s estate vineyards in Ois do Bairro, and partially from other growers in various villages in Bairrada. Handpicked, fully destemmed, and fermented and raised entirely in tank with a very gentle extraction. The wine has a beautiful medium purple core with vibrant red fruit nuances. It is very fresh and clean with a slight herbal note. Fine supple tannins on the finish. This is a fine example of unoaked baga.
Filipa Pato, the daughter of famed Portuguese winemaker Louis Pato. She branched out on her own in 2001 to craft traditional wines in Bairrada. She farms biodynamically and has a nonintrusive way in the cellar. Her wines are pretty, stylish and darn right irresistible! Her Dinamica Tinto is hard to beat, a great expression of Baga.

In most cases, wines with gimmicky names like Nat Cool are a turnoff. They reek of marketing, more than careful winemaking. But Dirk Niepoort is a visionary producer, so don’t look at the label, just drink. This is a delicious thirst quencher made of the baga grape, not complex. It’s easygoing and low in alcohol at 12 percent, with aromas and flavors of flowers and earthy red fruit. And it comes in a liter bottle.
Light in color, the 2017 has a very fruity character, but with more freshness and floral notes than the first vintage of this wine. The individuality of the Baga grape variety and the Bairrada region shine through clearly, with red fruits, some spice and a mineral undertone which reflects the lime-rich soils and the distinctly Atlantic climate. Fresh, truly enticing and full of precision, this is a wine which is light on its feet and easy to enjoy. It downright invites you to pour another glass! It is an incredibly versatile food partner - all you need for a successful pairing is a table and friends. Serve chilled. Naturally cool, pure pleasure!
The baga vineyards are farmed organically and are located in Bairrada. All work is done by hand. Soil is calcareous clay. They utilize natural fermentation with wild yeast. No sulphur is added.

Applying the Dujac-style in its fermentation (whole cluster pressed), the often fierce baga grape lends way to a wonderful sweet middle fruit, smooth, earthy and ripe with a superb future.
