Quinta da Serradinha's Baga e Outras 2012 is a complex red wine with a deep, almost inky color reminiscent of its grape skins. The aromas evoke the forest floor, mingling with the sweetness of very ripe fruit and hints of honey. The wine is full-bodied with firm tannins on the palate, softened by aging in French oak barrels. Despite its richness, the tannins create a lively dialogue with food on the taste buds.

This complexity is partly due to the influence of the Douro Valley's unique climate. Despite a dry season, the humidity from nearby Atlantic winds at the end of the ripening period enhanced the grapes' primary flavors. Quinta da Serradinha, a historic estate dating back centuries, benefits from this interplay of maritime and inland influences.

This versatile wine pairs well with all types of meat dishes, including game. When considering red meat pairings, remember that leaner cuts call for lighter wines. However, don't forget to factor in side dishes and sauces that can also influence the ideal wine choice.

The 2012 Baga e Outras is a blend dominated by Baga grapes (35%) alongside Castelão (30%), Touriga Nacional (20%), and Alfrocheiro (15%). After harvest on October 1st and 2nd, 2010, the wine matured for 24 months in French oak barrels, further enriching its flavor profile. The dry weather that year allowed for a later harvest, contributing to the grapes' optimal ripeness and the wine's aromatic expression.

Quinta da Serradinha

Within the Leiria area of Portugal, Quinta da Serradinha whispers a tale of five generations. Here, António Marquês da Cruz, the current custodian, carries the torch of a family deeply rooted in viticulture. Since 1957, their vines have thrived under the influence of the Encostas de Aire DOC. The Atlantic whispers tales of cool mornings and high rainfall, balanced by the warmth of dry summers. These contrasting forces create a canvas of slow, patient maturation, allowing grapes to retain their aromatic complexity.

Sustainability is woven into the very fabric of Quinta da Serradinha. Long before organic practices became mainstream, in 1994, they embraced this philosophy. Their 6 hectares of vines flourish in clay-limestone soil, basking on south-facing slopes. Here, nature reigns supreme, with organic methods guiding every step of the harvest.

The heart of Quinta da Serradinha beats with a focus on indigenous grape varieties. Baga and Tinta Miúda, the quintessential reds of the region, find their place alongside Alfrocheiro, Touriga Nacional, and Castelão. For whites, Arinto and Fernão Pires offer their refreshing charm.

Discovered in 2005 by Goliardos, a renowned Portuguese wine collective, Quinta da Serradinha's wines stood out from the crowd. High acidity and firm tannins, characteristics that might raise eyebrows in some circles, became their signature. This unwavering commitment to natural expression resonated with Goliardos' philosophy, a perfect match for a family steeped in tradition.

Over the years, António has further refined his craft. The resulting wines are bottled only in select vintages, ensuring exceptional quality. Each sip is a journey of authenticity, a testament to the vinous spirit of the land. The unique profile reflects not just the meticulous techniques employed but also the warmth and generosity that embodies António himself. Quinta da Serradinha is more than a winery; it's a legacy in a bottle, a story whispered through generations, and a testament to the beauty of embracing nature's rhythm.
