£14.88

Specification
Product Code NIPTTLBV05
Manufacturer Niepoort
Condition New
Weight 2.000Kg

£14.88 - With its brilliant red appearance and brick red hues on the rim, the wine offers refined aromas of cherries along with a subtle perfumed floral character as well as superb finesse. Essentially the wine is elegant in style, however, the palate presents somewhat of an enigma – initially the fruit and elegance on the nose comes through on the palate, but with gentle extract. It is superbly balanced and fresh, culminating in a somewhat robust and firm finish with a tannic grip. It will be interesting to see this wine develop as it ages, undoubtedly, in a very elegant manner.

Vinification
In 2012 the Douro region experienced a lack of rain. As a result, the vegetative cycle of the vine was delayed by 15 days on average compared to previous years. On the other hand, winter 2012 also brought very low temperatures, resulting in homogenous vegetative growth. The temperatures during the ripening period were not as hot as usual, creating a good balance in the total acidity of the grape musts. All grapes for the LBV 2012 were sourced from old vineyards in the Cima Corgo region of the Douro Valley
 
Harvest occurred during the month of September and after careful selection on the sorting table, the crushed grapes and stems were directly channeled to granite "lagares" and foot trodden prior to fortification. Following some cool winter months in the Douro, the wines were transported in early 2013 to the cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia and aged in large wooden vats and bottled in the fourth year - a tradition at Niepoort to retain freshness in the wines
