Wine information: Niepoort Batutart Batuta was first released in 1999 with the intention of revealing an impressive yet elegant Douro wine. “Batuta”,meaning the baton used by an orchestral conductor, proved to be the perfect name. Batuta demonstrates the most discrete behavior; the tannins are present but are fine and elegant, the aroma is very rich and intense but never exuberant, has plenty of concentration from the old Douro vineyards but is fresh and elegant. North facing very old vineyards from Quinta do Carril are the main source for Niepoort Batuta, but the grapes also come from older vines (about 100 years old) near Quinta de Nápoles. Batuta results from a very delicate vinification, where the alcoholic maceration is led to the limit and where all details are taken into account in order to obtain this very complex, fine and elegant wine. A blend of Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional and other varietals aged for 21 months in French oak barrels (228L).

Tasting Notes: Niepoort Batuta is an intense and deep colour. The aroma has great complexity, with an earthy mineral character, black fruit aromas and spicy notes of black and green pepper. Very elegant, with mineral and cigar box aromas. Tight and precise in the palate, subtle with intense fruit flavours and impressive freshness. Fine and seductive tannic structure. Everything linked to a long lasting ending, with great persistent. To age many years in the bottle.
