Wine information: Niepoort Batuta is not made every year and this is only the sixth year that Batuta has been produced. The inspiration for Batuta is to create the finest wine possible and only when all the conditions are perfect, can Batuta be made. Batuta is produced from two totally different vineyards: the northfacing vineyard Carril (with vines overover 70 years old) and a south facing vineyard located at an altitude of 750 meters (with vines over 100 years old) to provide a natural high acidity. The blend is mainly Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional and some other varieties. Grapes for the 2005 Batuta were harvested in the first half of September. After careful selection both in the vineyard and the winery, the grapes were destemmed. Fermentation was in stainless steel vats with a skin contact of 30 to 60 days. The wine is then put directly into French oak barrels, before malolactic fermentation, and it is aged in these for 20 months. Niepoort's notes - "Intense colour and aroma with great complexity, black and red fruit aromas, intense earthy and spicy notes of black and green pepper, very elegant with balsamic and mineral notes along with tobacco aromas, ends with subtle coffee, moka and toasty aromas. Very tight and precise in the palate, with intense fruit and impressive minerality. Fine and seductive tannic structure, balanced with good freshness. Everything linked to long last ending, with great after tasting, for a long life in bottle."
