Niepoort Twisted Tinto Douro 2014

External Review by We Speak Wine:

The idea behind TWISTED is the creation of a pleasant, easy drinking red wine, keeping complexity, mineral notes and great depth, like the classic Douro wines. The label also tells a story: creation and illustration are done by the american animator Bill Plympton. Tasting Notes: Very vivid ruby color, of medium concentration. Vibrant in the nose, scented with a fresh and very expressive aroma in the wild fruit notes. Spices and tea leaves harmoniously linked with a balsamic profile, originate a complex and captivating aroma. In the mouth, more elegant than the previous edition, has a markedly mineral profile. With a good mouth volume, young, with good acidity and soft tannins, is a feel like tasting wine, without being heavy thanks to its balance. Long finish, with a very refreshing mineral flavor. Grape Varieties: Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela and others
