'Ruby red in appearance, this wine offers fresh aromas of red berries and spices. This lively, vibrant fruitiness echoes the terroir of this region beautifully. On the palate, the Baga grape variety also presents a pronounced fruity and fresh character, with a long finish. The Lagar de Baixo is a wine which captivates us and lingers in our minds for quite some time!' – Niepoort

Tasting notes on the 2017 vintage:
'Expressive, Pinot-esque, this blend of young and old vine fruit from around Cantanhede undergoes carbonic maceration and was aged in used 2,500-litre vats. Lovely floral lift to its sweet, silky red berry and pithier raspberry fruit, with earthier beetroot and chamois tannins for savouriness. Mineral acidity carries a persistent finish with hints of iodine, pine needle and whole bunch spice. Drinking Window 2020 - 2025.' – Sarah Ahmed, Decanter, 94/100

'Graceful, with harmonious layers of steeped black cherry, blackberry and currant notes interlaced with mineral, anise and savory spice details. This is nicely crafted, with smooth, round tannins encasing black tea, dried floral and underbrush elements on the engaging finish. Drink now through 2029.' – Wine Spectator, 91/100
