Description

Robustus pays homage to the first Douro wine produced by Dirk Niepoort, the Robustus 1990, which was never released commercially. The long maturation period in old wooden barrels lends the wine maturity and complexity, while softening the tannins and giving it precision and balance, without compromising on vivacity and aromatic freshness. The Robustus is crafted from Niepoort's oldest, North-facing vineyards, where acidity and tannic structure are particularly pronounced. A fresh, balanced and accomplished wine with great ageing potential.

Tasting Notes

Deep, complex and austere aromas offer multiple layers. The old vines and the blend of grape varieties contribute to its fine and strongly individual character. Wonderful freshness, minerality and razor-sharp precision. Full-bodied and unctuous, this wine presents remarkable balance. The fine-grained tannins and long barrel maturation lend the Robustus a delicate and elegant manner, with a long and expressive finish full of tension and grip.
