Bairrada is a region of excellence for the production of sparkling wines. The limestone terroir and the natural acidity of the Bical, Cercial and Maria Gomes varieties are exceptional attributes that make it possible to produce sparkling wines of great quality. In 2015, maintaining the Quinta de Baixo tradition of vinifying classic-style sparkling wines without dosage, Niepoort created Água Viva, a raw sparkling wine, blanc des blancs.

Vinified according to the traditional method, the second fermentation took place in a bottle with free yeasts and aged on fine lees, in the Quinta de Baixo cellar, for 24 months.

Straw yellow in color, it shows a fine and persistent bubble. Austere, fresh and complex in aroma, with a citrus and white fruit profile in harmony with a slight toast. In the mouth it is still very young, with a claw, creamy and with a very present acidity. Vibrant and very persistent, it has a dry, fine and refreshing finish.

This bairradino sparkling wine goes very well with fat dishes (suckling pig, kid roasted in a wood oven, cod).
