Niepoort's fabulous Reserva Tinto shines in a vibrant, concentrated ruby red colour in the glass. In the nose, a mineral and fresh aroma spreads with floral notes, surrounded by forest fruits. Its extremely seductive fragrance profile skilfully combines the subtle hints of wood with the fruit.
Elegantly, this Portuguese red wine flatters the palate and reveals its beautiful volume. The wonderfully balanced mouthfeel combines notes of fresh spices and fresh fruit with acidity and delicate tannins. An enormously long, filigree and complex finish completes the enjoyment.
Vinification of the Fabulous Reserva
After careful selection of the grapes from the Niepoort winery, fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with a maceration life of up to 20 days. The organic acid degradation takes place in French oak barriques, where the wine matures for 15 months.
