Joao Pato 2017 Espumante Bruto 'Duckman'Original Wine Co.
Maria João Pato started a project called "Duckman," with a focus on making artisinal wines from only the local Bairrada grapes Baga, Bical, Cercial and Fernão Pires. This Bruto Branco comes from a tiny parcel of Fernão Pires on sandy soil, fermented in stainless steel, with wine from 1997 used as the 'liqueur de tirage.' The salinity and fresh herbs of the Fernão Pires are balanced with the texture and subtle richness of long lees aging. A unique sparkling wine.
