free run juice from traditional stone lagares. Complexity is obtained by a longer skin contact using old vineyards grapes. More than a summer afternoon wine, Redoma rosť is a wine to go with food, with a white wine freshness and the volume and the structure of a red. 2010 year will be remembered for the strong rains allover winter and beginning of spring, high amounts of water in the soil led to higher yields and raised the diseases pressure in the vineyards; July and August were hot and dry, promoting a fast maturation process. The increased amount of cluster per vine didnít allow the sugar levels to rise into levels similar with the previous harvest. Fermentation was in new oak barrels and ageing in vats, with no malolactic. therefore the wine keeps the freshness and acidity enough to balance the structure and the volume of older vineyards. Niepoort Redoma Rose is a blend of 30% Tinta Amarela, 20% Touriga Franca and 50% other grape varieties.
