Niepoort Lagar de Baixo Baga 2018

16.50 VAT incl.

With a medium concentration ruby color, Lagar de Baixo is very expressive in the notes of fresh red fruits, slightly vegetable, reminiscent of stem notes. Fresh and very defined aroma, it presents a very attractive profile. Very fine in the mouth, with a mineral and wild profile, it is a wine with very present tannins, but harmonized with good volume in the tasting. Fresh and delicate, with presence without being opulent. The aftertaste is refreshing and very long. With the typical acidity of the Baga variety in a very balanced set, a long and noble aging in the cellar is expected.
