|Cast||Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Amarela, Sousão and Tinta Roriz|
|Vinification||In 2003, the harvest had very hot days and also very humid days. The production was high but with small grapes that produced concentrated tannins and colour. Overriped and dry grapes were taken out to reassure the finesse of the wine|
|Tasting Notes||Fine, elegant, mineral but not balsamic. The taste continues fine, aggressive and with tannins, rich but not excessive and with a long final. Impressive finesse even though robust|
|Enjoy||Perfect with Queijo da Serra, a Stilton or other blue cheeses. Egg based desserts with Pão de Ló (Portuguese sponge based cake)|
|Bottle Size||750 ml|
The Niepoort family has been producing Port Wine since 1842. The first estate in the Douro was bought in 1987 and Dirk Niepoort ushered in a new era in the company with the creation of the first red wine in 1991. In recent years, Niepoort has launched to itself the great challenge of interpreting other soils and climates, and acquired two properties in other regions: Dão and Bairrada
