Details

Lagar de Baixo Barraida Niepoort, light, expressive, complex red wine from Portugal. Made from the local grape Baga, this wine gives cherry and blackberry aromas, with structured tannins but light colour and volume - great for lovers of Burgundy Pinot. Although aged in wood casks, it is well integrated and the palate is fresh and clean. The wine is unfiltered, low in sulphites and from old vines of 20 years old.

Founded in 1842, the small Port house of Niepoort is now run by 5th generation brother and sister Dirk and Verena Niepoort. Its easy to forget that it was only a few years ago that Niepoort was only sought out by a small band of faithful followers, as stock of remarkable, artisan wines built up in the cramped old Niepoort lodge in Rua Serpa Pinto in Vila Nova de Gaia. These days, with a formidable international reputation which spans all styles from aged tawny to vintage, and all points in between, demand threatens to outstrip supply. Ports are all made at the old Museu de Lagares in Vale de Mendiz, which has the only circular granite Lagares in the Douro.
