Niepoortland Tawny Dee, Niepoort, Douro Valley Half Bt

Douro Blend

The Niepoortland Tawny Dee sees around three and a half years in small barrels so is just starting to develop a brick red/tawny colour and has delicate nutty aromas and a hint of dried fruits on the nose. On the palate it is beautifully balanced with a youthful fruity, luscious character, which integrates well with a long spirity finish.

2017 Late Bottled Vintage Port, Quinta Gaivosa

Douro Blend

The Alves de Sousa family has been producing wines for several generations, initially suppling fruit and wine to other port companies. When Domingos Alves de Sousa inherited his family’s quintas in 1987, he began producing wine under the family name. After studying viticulture in Bordeaux and his native Portugal, acquiring additional properties and constructing a modern cellar at Quinta da Gaivosa, he released his first vintage in 1991. Since then, Domingos and his wines have gained critical acclaim. Notably, he was named “Producer of the Year” by Revista de Vinhos in 1999 and 2007, and is the only person to have won this prestigious award twice.

2019 Vintage Port, Niepoort, Douro Valley

Douro Blend

The 2019 Niepoort Vintage Port has a brilliant appearance with a dark purple rim and concentrated depth of colour. The aroma is fine and subdued with only a hint of primary dark fruits and some spice. The true potential and style of this wine really comes together on the palate with wonderful integration of dark fruits with a grainy tannic structure, pairing volume with amazing balance and elegance and an impressive finish. In conclusion, the primary fruit on the palate is appealing at this stage, but it’s the balanced tannic structure which indicates great ageing potential for the future.

Rainwater Reserva.JPG

Rainwater Reserva, Barbeito, Madeira

Verdelho

This blend of 80% Tinta Negra and 20% Verdelho is aged in cask for 5 years naturally, without the addition of caramel and is designed to mimic the 'Rainwater Style' of Madeira. The origins of this style are ambiguous, (depending on who you speak to), but it is thought to derive from when the barrels were left outside and the wine inside took on a particular characteristic having been lashed by the Atlantic rains.  What we can be certain of is that this is a stunning style medium dry Madeira that has complex flavours of almonds, caramel, nuts and candied fruits.  The finish is long and balanced with terrific acidity.
