A red wine based on the ancient baga grape from the Barrosa vineyard. It is a wine with a huge aromatic impact, complex and wild, with notes of berries, moss and eucalyptus. The Baga caste is very evident in the mouth, but in a version based on delicacy and finesse, with a refreshing acidity, all wrapped in a full, complex, excellent, great wine with very large storage potential
Luis describes himself as a ‘free’ winemaker. He believes that the fact that he trained as a chemical engineer and not an oenologist has given him a different perspective on making wine. His philosophy marries old-world style and Latin-born influence with an appreciation of a more Anglo-Saxon style vision. Oh, and he is also a pragmatist! Filipa, Pato’s daughter, also a trained chemical engineer, hasn’t just followed in her father’s footsteps, she’s gained a reputation in her own right. An innovator like her father with a similar bent for pushing boundaries. One thing that father and daughter share too is a desire to make wines as naturally as possible. ‘We worked in the chemical industry,’ explains Luis, ‘we don’t want to have to pay for their chemicals!’ Filipa says she aims to make ‘authentic wines without make-up’.
