Vinho Tinto, "Nerd Duck"
94% Fernão Pires, 6% Baga
From 94% Fernao Pires-- a white Portuguese varietal-- Nerd Duck is, indeed, a red wine thanks to the 6% of Baga present. It is medium-bodied and vibrant, with a bright acidity and spicy plum notes. Pairs nicely with light dishes like pasta, chicken, or vegetables.
The vineyards are certified sustainable and sorted in the vineyard at harvest time in early September. The grapes are then de-stemmed, spend three hours on the skins and co-fermented spontaneously in plastic lagar that lasts three weeks with no temperature control. The wine is aged in 600L casks for six months. Not fined or filtered.
