Filipa Pato 3B Brut Rose NV
Filipa Pato and William Wouters, from Bairrada, Portugal, are the wife and husband team behind this wine, their simple philosophy is to create authentic wines without make-up; the wines express the true nature of the vineyards from which they came. The winemakers focus on indigenous grapes only, in this case, 75% red-skinned baga and 25% white bical. Filipa, a Chemical Engineering graduate of the University of Coimbra, refined her winemaking skills working harvests in Bordeaux, France, Mendoza, Argentina, Margaret River, Australia, as well as with her father, Luis Pato, the Baga rebel. William, is a sommelier, restauranteur and former head chef of the Belgian national Soccer team. Together their experiences, their love for food and wine, encounters with great wine growers, sommeliers and wine lovers from all over the world and the magical inexhaustible culture of the world of wine create soulful wines from vineyards using biodynamic viticultural practices.
This Beiras Brut Rose is a rich sparkler that brings to mind a raspberry mousse with its supple, refreshing fruit flavors and a vibrant salinity. It’s creamy, with plenty of acidity and bubble to finish on a lovely, clean fragrance.
