Niepoort Twisted Tinto Douro 2012

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Red appearance with a very alive purple/red rim. The aroma is dominated by finesse, some unripe fruit character integrated with balsamic notes. On the palate the wine is well structured, uncomplicated and refreshing and the low level of wood contact allows the fruit and minerality of the wine to express itself. The middle palate is quite firm with good depth, while the finish exhibits complexity, medium length and superb freshness and acidity on the finish. - WineryGrape Varieties: Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz,Tinta Amarela, Tinto Cão and othersAgeing: 12 months in 225 L used French oak barrels (10%) and the rest in stainless steel.Dry Extract: 28.1Residual Sugar: 1.8 (g/dm3)Alcohol: 13.0%Total Acidity: 4.8 (g/dm3)
