VIN
‘The 2020 Baga Lagar do Baixo hails from Bairrada. It underwent carbonic maceration and aged for up to 19 months in large barrels. Displaying a garnet hue, it wafts up from the glass with aromatic notes of black tea, white pepper, red fruits and a leafy character, underscored by oak. This flavorful, modern red is dry, juicy and refreshing, with a textured mouthfeel that contributes to its compact profile. 2024-2036’ – Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, 92/100

‘The Lagar de Baixo is a delicate yet complex red wine. Its colour is lively and pale, with some purple glints. On the nose, floral nuances and notes of aromatic herbs mingle with cherry and pomegranate aromas. The time spent maturing in barrels complements the wine’s profile with hints of spice and vanilla pods. The wine’s rounded, polished and highly elegant palate also offers plenty of freshness and intensity, ending in a long, expressive finish.’ – Winemaker

Dirk ‘helped transform the region and the way the world thinks about wine’ says Wine & Spirits Magazine about Dirk and his role in the Douro. His wines transcend the extreme heat of the Douro and display great freshness and elegance.
