Luis is a great producer from Bairrada, in central coastal Portugal between
Porto and Lisbon. Something of a maverick throughout his 35 years of winemaking
in the region. Luis Pato's flagship red comes from a selction of old vineyards
and therefore different soiltypes, with all vines over 40 years old (and some
much older). This includes a small part coming down from the top Pan and Barrosa
cuvees. Stainless steel vinification with a over a year aging in used french
barrels results in a fantastic red wine, so very typical of the region and the
baga grape variety.

His old vine Tinto is a very interesting expression of the Baga grape, the most
prevalent variety in Bairrada and one which Luis has mastered in his own way.
Fermented with stalks and skins and then aged in large 600-litre barrels for 18
months.

Raspberry on the nose with dark fruits and pine. Vanilla black olive and dark
plum on the palate developing into woody, chocolatey flavours with a lasting
finish. An hour in a decanter brings out a wonderful rock-rose perfume.
