Quinta das Bágeiras Espumante Bruto Tinto Natural '17

Sparkling red is a category of wine that largely remains under the radar.

Perhaps the most famous sparkling red wines come from Emilia, the sparkling red Lambrusco that is so versatile with the local cuisine. Your next stop on the sparkling red journey may be Australia, where Sparkling Shiraz has been embraced by the local wine enthusiasts. 

Quinta das Bágeiras, one of our favorite Bairrada producers, is creating this new category in the world of Portuguese wines. I can't think of another sparkling red wine produced in Portugal. 

As a refresher, Quinta das Bágeiras is a small family run operation in the town of Fogueira in the Bairrada region. The main grape of this region is Baga, a grape that offers high acidity, tannins, fruit, mineral and earth notes. At Bágeiras, roughly 80% of production is sparkling wine, made with both the white and red indigenous varietals of the region. In fact this is not the only Baga based sparkling at Bágeiras, they also produce an excellent Rosé.

This wine is different. One of the most unique sparkling wines you will ever taste! It is produced entirely from Baga harvested at lower alcohol levels than would typically go into their red wine. After foot treading, the juice is fermented in old wooden tonels, and ages for a full year in barrel before being fermented for a second time, this time in bottle. 

The wine is disgorged, with no additional sugar in the liqueur d'expedition. 

A truly wild wine, with aromas of black cherry, pencil shavings, mineral and nutmeg. Bright with acidity, yet slightly tannic and structured in the mid palate. It is a savory, earthy sparkling red that would pair incredibly well with a grilled ribeye steak, braised lamb shanks or dishes based around wild mushrooms. 

There is nothing else quite like this Sparkling Red from Bágeiras. Just 4000 bottles produced.
