Vineyards & Viticulture
Since Niepoort purchased Quinta de Lomba in 2012, they have been procuring vineyard blocks, including some very old sites, which express the memorable character of the region. Its mountainous microclimate in the foothills of the Serra da Estrela range make this 200-year-old estate unique. The grapes are sourced from the Gouveia and Vila Nova de Tázem vineyards.
Harvest & Vinification
The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks, with a longer maceration period and very little extraction. After completing the alcoholic fermentation process, the wine was aged in cement tanks and then eventually bottled unfiltered.
