Filipa Pato Fortified Espírito de Baga
The winemaker fortify it with the illustrious brandy of Baga wine, which stops the fermentation and leaves the residual sweetness in the wine. The Espirito, or Spirit, as you now know why, is bottled after two years of aging in authentic old barrels called pipas. In the bottle it can age for 15 years or more. It will soften into a delicious, slightly sweet and perfumed wine with the most delicious blend of blackberry, blackcurrant, cherry and damson fruits, a tobacco or herby spice and a peppery heart.
