Despite a challenging 2018 growing season with high rainfall followed by scorching summer heat, meticulous vineyard management and the region's water reserves ensured good quality grapes. This unforgiving weather highlighted the importance of preventative measures in the vineyard. The wine itself, produced from old vine Bairrada vineyards with limestone-rich soils, boasts a classic Burgundian character. Following fermentation in stainless steel tanks and large oak fuders, the VV 2018 underwent malolactic fermentation and a 20-month maturation period before being bottled unfiltered. Visually, the wine displays a brilliant lemon color. On the nose, it is discreet yet captivating, offering citrus and apricot notes alongside hints of nuts, florals, and fresh herbs. The palate is where this wine truly shines, showcasing impressive structure, elegance, and a vibrant acidity complemented by a saline minerality that speaks to the Bairrada's limestone terroir. The finish is long and lingering, concluding with subtle spicy notes.

For over 180 years and six generations, Niepoort has carefully crafted a legacy driven by an unwavering passion for wine. Led by Dirk van der Niepoort, the fifth-generation visionary, the family business embraces tradition while fearlessly venturing into new projects. Dirk's captivating fascination with wine, honed through experience rather than traditional training, yields renowned red, white, and port wines that define the Niepoort winery. With a steadfast commitment to the Douro region, Dirk has not only achieved international acclaim but also realized his dream of crafting extraordinary table wines. Since 1842, the independent Niepoort family has been an esteemed presence in the port wine market. Their journey began when Franciscus Marius Niepoort founded the renowned port wine house, and it reached a milestone in 1987 when Dirk van der Niepoort acquired their own vineyards. Quinta de Nápoles, an ancient estate with historical significance dating back to 1496, was joined by Quinta do Carril. These vineyards, once neglected, required significant investments for revitalization, including complete replanting and preservation of old vines. Today, Niepoort stands as a symbol of history and tradition, with an innovative approach to winemaking.
