Luis Pato, Vinha Pan Espumante, Bairrada, Portugal, 2017
(at Baga for Beginners Tasting, 20 May 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2025
Pale rose gold in hue with wild white strawberry, delicate hints of pink apricot and redcurrant, plus complexing hints of earthy minerality and fresh cep. Clipped, cleansing acidity refreshes; subtly sweet, yeasty fruit bloom notes linger. Made from early-harvested Vinha Pan[asqueira] Baga, this sophisticated and distinctly dry, zero dosage, traditional method fizz spent 30 months on lees and has no added sulphites.
