Cuvée presentation

This vintage port is the result of a skilful blend of regional grape varieties such as Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Amarela, among others. These come from old vines which are over 80 years old and draw their distinction from deep within shale soils in the Douro region. Renowned for the incredible finesse of his wines, Dirk Niepoort who manages these 62 hectares has opted for a traditional treading of the grapes. This is done by foot on the whole crop in large, round containers made of granite called “lagares”. The wine is settled shortly after the harvest and matured in large containers.
Tasting reveals a true meditation wine with a lovely, very deep purple colour. This unleashes intense aromas of fresh black fruit. The palate is both powerful and elegant, and structured by beautiful tannins. We recommend aging this wine for many years. It will go perfectly with dishes full of character such as venison in pepper sauce, duck à l’orange or Beaufort cheese.

Information about domain Niepoort

Recognised across the world for his Port, Dirk Niepoort manages this 62-hectare domain in the sumptuous Douro domain. Once he took over the family domain in 1987, Niepoort set himself the great challenge of growing his own vines, whilst his family had always bought grapes from elsewhere. This was a success: his dry wines are now as sought-after as his Port. Why? They are especially classy, with a surprising finesse for the region.
