Niepoort Redoma Reserva Branco 2018
From the winery:
“The Redoma Reserva comes from vineyards which are more than 80 years old, planted in mica-schist soils at an altitude of 600 metres above sea level. Since its first edition in 1995, the main objective in producing this wine has been to reflect the character of the Douro’s old vines. The best barriques were selected for the wine’s maturation in order to guarantee minerality, complexity and ageing potential.
“The Redoma Reserva Branco 2018 fermented spontaneously in French oak barrels where it also underwent partial malolactic fermentation and a 9-month-long maturation period. Having fermented and aged in barrels on its fine lees, this Redoma Reserva boasts flawless structure, which in combination with its acidity, makes for a beautifully elegant and multifaceted wine. Distinct floral aromas harmonise beautifully with the oak, leading to a vibrant and electric palate and lastly, a lingering and subtly saline finish.”
