Biodynamic, Certified Organic
Vineyards & Viticulture
With the acquisition of the Quinta de Baixo in 2012, Niepoort was able to convert the property to biodynamic principles over two years. The result is a combination of very old vines and younger vines.
Harvest & Vinification
Grapes are manually harvested. The wine was fermented in open lagares for four weeks before completing its fermentation process in large, used 2500 L vats. In these same vats, the wine went through malolactic fermentation and a maturation period of 20 months before it was bottled unfiltered.
