Filipa Pato Nossa Calcario Bical'17 Bairrada, Portugal
A single varietal Bical an indigenous Portuguese grape variety made by Filipa Pato, Bairradas heir to the thrown. (Her Father Luis Pato is Considered the father of the region) Filipa's motto has always been wines without make-up, authentic and true to the terroir. Nossa Calcario Bical is a perfect example of not only what the region has to offer but as well as the grape variety when nature is allowed to run its course. Very mineral nose with a certain smokiness due to the limestone soil. It has a distinguished fruity touch of pears (typical Bical) and slightly nutty character (hazelnut, almonds, pines). After some time in the glass it reveals thyme and honey. A fine elegant serious white wine that will benefit with the company of food.
