Dirk Niepoort's love for Burgundy was the reason to plant a hectare of Pinot Noir vines in the Douro Region in 1999 on the top of Quinta de Nápoles. Which is the freshest and highest location of the property to make a wine intended as a fresh, elegant and fine wine, not heavy and with a long finish.
The year of 2014 was a year of lower quantity but higher quality. Due to the ripening Niepoort could start harvest from August 23rd to September 21st.
The Pinot Noir grapes were fermented in an open wooden vat with the stems with 15 days of maceration, without any mechanical extraction. The wine aged for 14 months in used French oak barrels. It was bottled in May 2016, without fining or filtration.
"Beautiful red colour with light concentration. On the nose, it presents aromas of fresh red fruits, graphite and some exotic spices. Delicate and complex, it has a genuine profile of Pinot Noir variety, where the elegance is always excepcional. Very fresh in the mouth, with slight vegetable notes from the stem, it shows seductive and appellative tannins. Long finish, full of red fruit in Burgundy style. In a year of delicate reds, the Pinot Noir 2014 shows all of its fine and elegant side. It will age very well, but it’s a pleasure to already enjoy it!"
