Description

Vertente is a highly approachable wine of great appeal and complexity, combining fruitiness and concentration of Douro wines with freshness typical of Niepoort's winemaking philosophy. Vertente, which means hillside, represents an overview of the Douro Valley, is made up of a bit of all the Douro terroirs that Niepoort cultivates. The majority of the grapes originate from old vineyards aged between 50 and 80 years, with a traditional blend of several grape varieties.

Tasting Notes

Aromatic nose of fruits of the forest, leading to a palate of discernible but well-integrated wood and tannins, with hints of dark chocolate, smokiness and spice. Pretty rich on the finish.
