REDOMA TINTO

Redoma red expresses the Douro character as we understand it: the edgy tannins represent the wilderness and the steepness of the vineyards, the strong character, results from the mountain hard viticulture, the mineral notes express the schist’s soils of the region, and the rich aroma, the sunny summer days. This was the first Douro wine produced by Niepoort in 1991, 20 years later many things have changed in Douro, but Redoma has kept its character. Produced from several north facing old vineyards over 60 years old, located in the Cima Corgo Region, the blends in the different vineyards include Tinta Amarela, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, and several others.

 

TASTING NOTES


Dark in color. Red and black fruit aromas with plenty of plums, cherries notes and balsamic herbaceous aromas reminding the native Mediterranean flora. Strong mineral character with a wet stone aroma, very rich and complex. The palate is firm, supported by a good acidity and great tannic structure, soft, with present tannins, very long and persistent.
