2015 Susana Esteban, Filipa Pato & William Wouters Sidecar red
To share moments, ideas and experiences with other oenologists or people connected to wines is something that I have always liked and encouraged. So, I decided to create the brand Sidecar. Each year I will challenge a friend to produce wine in my wine cellar, in Mora. They will decide how to interpret this region’s fantastic vineyards.... by driving the motorcycle! For Sidecar’s second edition, I invited two friends, the winemaker Filipa Pato and the sommelier William Wouters. Quite a mix, you would think... It makes all sense though! We decided to bring out the best field blend of indigenous grape varieties from the Serra de São Mamede, in a higher and cooler part of Alentejo and mix with an illustrious Baga grape from centennial vineyards of Atlantic influenced Bairrada.The wines were both fermented and aged in amphorae.
