Garnet red in colour with violet hue. The bouquet shows aromas that are fine and complex, with the terroir standing out in a remarkable way. Limestone is breathed in in full harmony with notes of spices, cherry, wild berries and mint. The palate impresses with its precision, with a huge structure and a lot of claw. It is incisive, deeply mineral and refreshing. The vibrant acidity and the present but polished tannins make us believe that it will grow a lot in the bottle. Very long, vertical and fresh on the finish.

Founded in 1842, the small Port house of Niepoort is now run by 5th generation brother and sister Dirk and Verena Niepoort. Its easy to forget that it was only a few years ago that Niepoort was only sought out by a small band of faithful followers, as stock of remarkable, artisan wines built up in the cramped old Niepoort lodge in Rua Serpa Pinto in Vila Nova de Gaia. These days, with a formidable international reputation which spans all styles from aged tawny to vintage, and all points in between, demand threatens to outstrip supply. Niepoort’s mission has always been to be a “niche player”, to produce distinctive Ports and Douro wines, combining centuries-old tradition with innovation. This continues today with new vineyard projects to produce dry, natural wines in the Douro – Bairrada – Dão triangle. The importance attached to understanding soils, climates and grape varieties has led the current head of the business Dirk Niepoort down the path of Biodynamics, a practise that respects the “moods” of Nature, to find a balance between biodiversity and minimum intervention, and the wines really speak for themselves. Many of their vineyards now have organic certification, which is very much against the grain in contemporary Port making. After 150 years of doing things just a little differently, Niepoort are now highly respected for their delicious Ports and an increasing array of natural table wines.
