Description

The Moscatel Do Douro 5 Anos, Niepoort is characterised by its unmistakable Muscat aromas, with floral and citrussy notes with hints of nuts, spice and honey adding further complexity. The palate is of quintessential Niepoort style: excellent structure, high acidity and a long finish which emphasises its delicate and refreshing character. This wine is reminiscent of an Auslese-style wine and is ideal as an end to a beautiful dinner after various wines and Ports have been enjoyed.


Dirk Niepoort is one of the Douro’s quirkiest winemakers and is never shy of innovation and experimentation.  He also has a deep love of tradition and has chosen to release some fortified Moscatel, a grape variety which has a long tradition in Portugal and has been grown by Niepoort family since the 1920’s. The grapes are harvested early in order to retain their natural acidity and 100% whole bunch fermented in traditional lagares.  The wine is fortified and then aged in primarily old casks (Portugues Pipes) and 10% new French Oak.

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.
