Professional Wine Reviews for Niepoort Redoma Douro Tinto 2016

Rated 96 by Wine Advocate
The 2016 Redoma is a field blend aged for 20 months in large and old wooden vats. It comes in at 13% alcohol. This was the final blend and out of cask, but it was a couple of weeks from bottling when seen. This adds intensity to the Vertente this issue but has some of the same characteristics, including glorious freshness and vivid fruit flavor. This is a terrific Redoma, tight, crisp, tense, focused and lingering, plus pretty delicious. It looks like a fine competitor to the 2015.

Additional Information on Niepoort Redoma Douro Tinto 2016

Winery Niepoort

Region: Douro

The vineyards situated around the Douro river in Portugal are amongst the oldest in Europe, and the area has been used for cultivating grapevines for at least two thousand years. As such, this is a region where tradition is strong, and authenticity is key, leading to characterful wines of real quality and uniquely Portuguese flavors. Although the region is most commonly known for its delicious and aromatic fortified wines, wineries and vintners of the Douro also make still red and white wines of great quality, using the many grape varietals which flourish there. Several red and white wine grape varietals grow extremely well in the region, thanks to the long hot summers and mild autumns the Douro enjoys, and each is used to its full potential by vintners with generations of experience and expertise.

Country: Portugal

One of the oldest regions of Portugal for wine production and vine cultivation is the Bairrada, the lush and clay-rich region responsible for an impressive range of red, white and rosé wines of exceptional quality. As with much of the country, this region benefits from long, hot summers, allowing the grapes to ripen to full maturity and thus carry a wide range of flavors and aromas. However, each region of Portugal produces wines which reach a high level of quality, from the more urbanized regions around Lisbon and Porto, where the famous fortified and Colares wines originate, to the island of Madeira and the Dao river valley, which each have their own distinctive wine cultures. The several thousand years of viticultural history in Portugal has allowed Portuguese wineries to master their own traditional techniques, which are still employed to this day across the country, yielding excellent results for the world to enjoy.
