The Tiara is a light white wine whose elegance, firm grip and vibrant energy bear witness to its origin: high-altitude sites belonging solely to Niepoort, planted with vines older than 60 years. The vineyards are situated at 600 metres above sea level, and Códega do Larinho is the predominant grape variety. As it is fermented with natural yeasts, the wine retains its fresh and elegant character.
The 2015 vintage presented us with very favourable weather conditions: plenty of sunshine and warmth but without too much moisture, ideal for even growth. One of this year’s peculiarities was the vines’ ability to remain hydrated during the ripening stage. At the end of August and beginning September the basal leaves were still moist and green, the berries well-hydrated and the grape skins thick and firm.
The vines from which the Tiara was crafted were harvested mid-September. The grapes were transported to the cellar under temperature-controlled conditions and pressed during the night. The must was left to settle for 24 hours before being left to ferment in large wooden vats at temperatures of 8°C to 13°C. The wine fermented for a whole year and underwent malolactic fermentation.
