Additional Information

Pure, minerally and powerful, with concentrated flavors of red plum and dried raspberry, loaded with powerful meaty notes. Sandalwood accents linger on the finish, showing caressing tannins. Its structure being rather airy and open, Barda was conceived to be consumed while still fresh and young. Its alcohol percentage is generally low ? 12 to 13 percent. Produced from Chacra?s youngest vineyards, Barda has a strong and character and is intended to be versatile ? a perfect companion for most foods. The vineyards, planted in 1990, grow on slightly sandy soils. As all our vineyards, Barda?s vineyards are ungrafted and massale selection yielding over 2 kilos per plant. It is fermented at low temperatures in round cement tanks, with natural and unfiltered indigenous yeasts.

A perfect pairing for fish, salads and omelettes.

Tasting Notes

JS94 - James Suckling
A bright and dense red with vivid lemon character, blueberries and stone. A firm and silky tannin structure. Full-bodied, but remains agile and energetic. This is half the normal production due to a short crop. 65% cement and the rest aged in used oak. Needs a year or two to come around but a beauty already.

TP92 - Tasting Panel
Lovely, bright cherry on the nose and palate; crisp, balanced, and fresh with tangy acidity; grown on slightly sandy soils in Chacra's youngest vineyards and aged ten months in French oak.

RP92 - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Barda is approachable and soft, with sweet fruit, in a more commercial profile. It comes from different vineyards?the majority from one plot planted in 1989 and small portions of older vines. It's a little more concentrated than usual, as they had very low yields, so it has some tannins, even if they are very fine grained. It fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts, and one-fourth of the wine matured in French oak barrels for ten months while the rest was kept in concrete. 52,000 bottles and 400 magnums were filled in January 2018.
