Description

Niepoort has been an independent family business since its creation in 1842. Today it is led by the fifth generation, Dirk Niepoort, supported by his sons Daniel and Marco. Dirk has been a relentless innovator and creative throughout his time at Niepoort. One of his early priorities was to purchase parcels of old, steep (and often north facing) vineyards in the Douro to give greater control over supply. Quinta de Napoles was purchased in 1987 with thirty hectares and Quinta do Carril followed in 1988 with nine hectares. Niepoort now own over eighty hectares of vineyards in the Douro, all farmed organically.
The Vertente is a wine of incredible elegance and complexity which masterfully combines the fruitiness and concentration of Douro wines with the freshness typical of Niepoort’s winemaking philosophy. As the name suggests (“Vertente” means “aspect” or “hillside”), this wine represents an overview of the Douro Valley: it is made up of a little bit of all the Douro terroirs that we cultivate. The majority of the grapes originate from old vineyards aged between 30 and 60 years, with a traditional blend of several grape varieties.
The colour is pale and of medium concentration. The nose, rich with aromas of fruits of the forest, also offers notes of graphite, spice, leather and beautifully integrated wood. On the palate, the wine shines with youthfulness, tension, acidity and structure. The finish is piquant and persistent.
White meats (turkey, chicken), grilled dishes. Oily fish (salmon, sea bass). Vegetarian options: pasta and quiches.
