2018 Niepoort Redoma Branco

£24.00

Crisp, Minerally, Expressive Portugese White

The grapes for Redoma Branco are sourced from old vines on the right bank of the Douro River, situated at an altitude ranging between 400 and 600 meters. These vineyards are dominated by the varieties of Rabigato, Códega do Larinho, Viosinho, Donzelinho, and Gouveio. Their micascist soils produce wines with a high mineral content, delicate in nature, and remarkably fresh.

The 2018 vintage had a cool summer, delaying grape maturation by three weeks and experiencing a sudden rise in temperature. Despite the heat, the wine is low in alcohol content, complex, and minerally wines.

Tasting Note: A delicate profile with less expressiveness compared to previous years. Fresh hints of lime, ginger, and exotic fruit stand out. The subtle barrel aging adds harmony and complexity, resulting in a fresh and structured palate with a firm acidity. The finish is long, mineral, slightly saline, and elegantly balanced. While young and delicate, this wine will certainly age well in the bottle.

Origin: Douro Valley, Portugal

Alcohol: 11.8%

Blend: Rabigato, Códega, Viosinho, Donzelinho, Dorinto

Niepoort

Experience the independent family business, passed successfully for five generations from one Niepoort to the next, with older and younger generations working side by side for a long period. We eagerly anticipate the sixth generation, ready for a future of close collaboration.

Dirk Niepoort, part of the fifth generation, leads the family business, following the retirement of his father, Eduard Rudolph Niepoort. Since his studies in Switzerland, Dirk has been passionate about wine and has brought innovation to the traditional Niepoort brand.

Niepoort strives to maintain its status as a "niche player" by crafting unique ports and Douro wines that blend centuries-old customs with modernity. This combination also encompasses wine from two other regions, the Bairrada and Dão, which have contributed to shaping the Douro - Bairrada - Dão triangle. The newest points in this triangle also "deliver the goods" and hold a significant place for Niepoort, as they possess immense potential by combining the rich heritage of Portugal's winemaking history with the potential for innovation.
