Description

Bastardo is a grape variety which can be found in the old vineyards of the Douro Valley, also Known as ÒTrousseauÓ in the French Jura region. The idea behind the Niepoort Bastardo is to try to tame the rustic character of the variety and to tease out its elegant and fresh side. The Bastardo vines are found scattered among the old vineyards of Quinta de Napoles, which are grown organically.

Tasting Notes

Elegant and delicate with fresh fruits of the forest aromas and vegetal notes typical of the Bastardo grape but also of whole-bunch fermentation. Excellent balance, with light and polished tannins and plenty of vivacity thanks to its well-integrated acidity. The Bastardo 2017 is a light and therefore refreshing wine with a rustic character reminiscent of the wines of the past. A beautifully long and precise finish round off the experience.
