Niepoort Dao Rótulo Tinto 2020

£16.99

A really interesting lighter expesession of the Dao region by top Portuguese winemaker Dirk Niepoort

Description

In 2012 Dirk Niepoort superstar winemaker from the Douro cast his eye over to the mountainous Dao region, to the south of the Douro, buying plots of old vines. His Rótulo wines are an opportunity to use old varietals to fashion a lighter-bodied but complex flavoured set of wines.

His Rótulo Tinto is made from Touriga Nacional, Jaen, Tinto Pinheira and Alfrocheiro between 30 -80 years old grown on granitic soils. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel, then aged in concrete before being bottled unfiltered. Pale coloured with a dark cherry nose with hints of tobacco leaf and spices, with an attractive, rounded and complex mineral and herbaceous palate.
