Tasting Notes

A blend of Codega do Larinho, Gouveio and Rabigato fermented in French oak from a small estate in the Douro. Fabulous Portuguese aroma-resinous aged character, quince and sour pear on the palate, brilliantly high acidity melded with a creamy texture and a richness of lime and freshly cut wood resin. - Julia Harding MW 17.5 points

*****

A passion for the land and wine led the Lamas Family to become a wine producer. About twenty years ago, after spending several years working in Lisbon, Ant�nio Lamas returned to his birthplace, Trev�es, and created the foundations of a wine growing business. The initial planting of vines took place on a 4 hectare parcel called �Bajancas� (meaning a place where witchcraft was performed, where the witch-doctor administered his remedies), situated on a south-facing slope with good conditions for the production of grapes. Currently Quinta das Bajancas has 12 hectares of vines on a total area of 70 hectares of schisty soil at an average altitude of 500 metres, ensuring the production of very fresh, mineral wines with excellent gastronomic potential. In order to preserve the estate�s individual characteristics Ant�nio Lamas used ancient grape vines that existed on the estate in �pilheiros� (ancient method in which the vines were grown in holes in schist walls), providing genuine genetic material representative of the wines formerly made in the region.
