Description

Biodynamic Portuguese Red Blend

When the Niepoort family moved from Holland to the Douro region of Portugal in 1842, one of the great Port houses of Oporto began. And in 1987, as the fifth generation to make fortified wines for the family business, Dirk Niepoort started following a brand-new path, continuing to make Port while also leading the way as one of Portugal’s most innovative, creative, and exciting producers of dry table wine. Dirk’s winemaking philosophy embodies his love of cuisine and wine. The wines are lower in alcohol, lighter, fresher, and balanced, which results in a more drinkable-styled wine with minimal new oak influence.

The grapes for this wine (Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela) are manually harvested. After arriving at the Quinta de Nápoles, they were carefully destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperatures for approximately one week. A portion of the wine was matured in French oak barriques whereas the rest of the wine remained in stainless steel for about six months.
