Niepoort NAT’Cool! Voyeur Tinto Amphora 2019

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalSix amphora reds and whites, from vines 40-50 years old, and from six different sites in the Douro go into this unique Voyeur wine. Voyeur is taken from different sites, altitudes, etc. each year. Each site spent 6 months in 1000L Spanish amphora, lined with beeswax, prior to blending in stainless, returning to amphorae for a couple of months, and then bottling. Pouring a lighter plum hue, this lighter red is crunchy and fresh with plum, wild blackberry, wild blueberry, and rockrose, threaded with lines of wax and pink peppercorns. Tannins are long and slight, and acidity is effortless and lifted, drawing this to a lingering, schistous finish. Enjoy this smashable wine now (conveniently in a #NatCool 1L format) with a light chill.Tasted: 21 September 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 43.95 1000 consignment Producer: Niepoort (Vinhos) S.A.Distributors: Vintage Corks Limited
