Wine information: Niepoort Doda is inspired by an old idea of his father and, so, Dirk Niepoort joined forces with Alvaro de Castro to blend the “perfect wine”. The innovative approach is the union of two different wine regions Dão and Douro. The blend of the different characteristics creates an impressive wine with the freshness and elegance of Dao and the concentration and fine tannins of Douro. The first Dado was born in 2000, a blend of 50% Dao wine from Quinta da Pellada and 50% Douro from Quinta do Carril. Making the wine was actually the easiest part of the process. The challenge was to overcome all the legal problems related to the label approval. As a table wine the label could not mention: regions involved , year of harvest, year of bottling, or the history of the wine… The result is lovely, perfumed, raspberry fruit aromas, with richness and freshness on the palate. Tannins are firm, acidity bright, and there’s a creamy feel to the whole. Niepoort Dado was produced in 2000, 2001, 2003, 2004 and the distribuition was limited to Portugal. Niepoort Doda started in 2005 for the world market. The 6th edition of Doda is made with 50% Dao and 50% Douro wines. The wine from the Douro is sourced from vineyards over 60 years, a field blend with predominance of Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz. Vinification was carried out in small conic vats, with 30 days of maceration; malolactic fermentation was carried out in old French oak barrels where the wine was also aged for 20 months. The Dão wine is sourced from Quinta da Pellada, from the “talhão 5” Touriga Nacional vineyard as well as old vineyards where a field blend of traditional varieties from the region dominates. Vinification was carried out in lagares and the wine aged in old and new French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation also occurred.

Tasting Notes: Niepoort Doda has a very complex aroma with spicy notes, pine and an earthy character, with discreet floral and red fruit aromas. A lively mineral acidity is evident on the palate ,with an impressive and well defined structure, with well integrated tannins,complex and very fine fruit, finishing with length and persistence. A wine with great ageing potential.
