Weingut über: Quinta de Baixo Lote D

-- Weingut: The Lote D is a very special terroir-driven wine whose every aromatic nuance reflects the deeply calcareous South-facing vineyard slope from which it was produced. With its light colour, low alcohol content and tremendous ageing potential, it is a tribute to the great Bairrada wines of the past. Dirk and Daniel Niepoort foster great passion for this wine and have therefore always harvested and vinified it separately. This is a father-and-son creation of great character. The harvest began mid-September in the old vineyards. The fruit showed well-balanced ripeness, with good sugar levels and relatively high malic acid contents. This resulted in favourable pH levels in the wines and higher total acidity levels than in the previous year. Our red wines display good balance and beautiful freshness. The Lote D 2015 started off its fermentation process with a period of 4 - 5 weeks in stainless steel and then finished fermenting in a large 2500L wooden barrel. This is also where the wine completed malolactic fermentation and an ageing period of 20 months. It was bottled unfiltered. This 2015 single vineyard wine displays a brilliant violet hue. On the nose, it shows the unmistakable character of the Baga grape variety with smoky and leathery notes as well as hints of wild berries, dark cherries and blossoms. After swirling in the glass, it reveals all the potential of this single vineyard, with incredibly fine, delicate and persistent aromas. On the palate, the wine impresses with its acidity, structure, elegance and salty finish. Thanks to its high acidity and marked but smooth tannins, this is a wine which will age beautifully in the bottle. It finishes very long, with the same linearity and freshness. It is best enjoyed slightly chilled (15°C), in a Pinot Noir glass.
