Niepoort Sempar 2008 (Douro)
Niepoort has been an independent family business since 1842. Fifth generation Dirk joined his father Rolf in the family business in 1987, and was challenged to innovate while maintaining the business' traditions.
The first important step in modernising the business was the acquisition of their own vineyards: Quinta de Nápoles and Quinta do Carril in Cima Corgo, a region that traditionally produces the best Port Wines; 15 hectares of vineyards were newly planted, and 10 hectares 60-year old vines were carefully maintained.
Now head of the business, Dirk is one of the most important thinkers on the Douro scene, and a noted innovator. His passion for wine and the humble respect and curiosity for the Douro terroir has defined the Niepoort spirit over the past two decades.
Intense red fruit and spice teams with a typical Douro schist stony character. The palate is vibrant and appealing, with bright fruit, juicy tannins and good acidity that extends the back palate.
