Niepoort Batuta Douro 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Perfumed chocolatey, spicy nose with some roasted notes and taut dark fruits. There’s a lovely tight, rounded spicy structure to the palate which has more of that roasted edge and a spicy finish. Dense, taut and concentrated this is a young wine with a lot of potential. Refreshingly this is only 12.8% alcohol. Two days later we retried what was left in the bottle: it was still dense and tight, but the roasted character has diminished, which brings the focused fruit more to the fore.

The best bottle of portugues wine I have ever tasted. Perfect with a nice steak
