Luis Pato, Vinha Pan Baga, Bairrada, Portugal, 2017
(at Baga for Beginners Tasting, 20 May 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2037
This polished single-vineyard Baga has beautifully integrated oak, fine, ripe tannins and a lingering, spicy finish. De-stemmed and aged in 650-litre French oak barrels. Suckling pig is the classic match; but with signature anise- and liquorice-accented fruit – silky plum, red berry and cherry – not to mention 'pato' meaning 'duck', Peking duck and plum sauce spring to mind.
