Niepoort Red Blend Douro Batuta 2002
Tasting Notes Impressive, generous aroma with concentrated fruit balanced with elegant notes of tea and tobacco. Velvet, with mature tannins with smooth red fruits. Structured and complete and with great freshness. Finishes slowly and persistent with coffee and mokka. Vinification After the manual harvest and the strict selection of the grapes, Charme ferments in a traditional stone Lagar with all the stems. After a short maceration (like in the port wine) the vinification is completed in new French oak casks. The wine stays in this oak for 15 month also for malolactic fermentation.
Niepoort’s mission is to preserve the niche player position and continue to create great Port and Douro wines bringing together secular tradition and innovation.
