Vadio's Sparkling Rosé is 100% Baga. This is super, the big burst of acidity lending it a touch of tartness that makes it refreshing and lively. It has just enough concentration, although that is not its strongest suit. It also adds some complexity as the Baga opens up.

This had no malolactic fermentation because the 2018 acidity was lower than in 2017, said the winemaker. That technique worked well here, as this certainly seems bright. I hate to be a broken record, but this is another fine white in this very consistent bottling. It should age very well and perhaps will be better in a year or two.
