O Produtor, tasting note published in July 15th 1905

On the nose it is discreet, with notes of citrus, orchard fruit and a herbaceousness that gives it character and complexity.
In the mouth it has volume and structure. The aftertaste is almost spicy, persistent and prolonged by an excellent acidity!

Niepoort

Tiara comes from over 60-year-old vines, planted at an elevation of 600 metres, where the predominant variety is Códega do Larinho. A fine, light wine, with a lot of energy.

VINIFICATION

The 2021 harvest started on August 11th, with excellent indicators, high acidity musts, low alcohol, fairly hard skin, resulting in well balanced wines, both white and red.

In September, the climatic instability gave rise to a peak in the entry of grapes into the winery and the existence of different maturations depending on their geographical location.

After a selection of the grapes in the vineyard, they were transported in 25 kg boxes in refrigerated lorries. At the entrance of the winery, a second sorting took place. The grapes were gently pressed in a stainless steel vat where the must was decanted cold.

This was then transferred to a Foudre where it fermented spontaneously for about a year (alcoholic and malolactic fermentation) with room temperature control.

Niepoort Vinhos

The Niepoort family has been creating Port Wines since 1842. The first property in Douro was bought in 1987 and Dirk Niepoort started a new Era in the company with the creation of the first Redoma red in 1991. In the last years Niepoort took on the great challenge of interpreting other soils and climates and acquired two properties in other regions, Dão and Bairrada. Discover the Niepoort Triangle which express the different terroirs: Schist (Douro), Limestone (Bairrada) and Granite (Dão).
