Notiz zum Wein: Redoma Tinto / 1999

Dinner with Dirk Niepoort

From 60 year old north facing vineyards, this is fermented in stainless steel tanks and then aged in barrel. Very deep coloured, with a rich, brooding liquorice-edged nose that displays smoky blackcurrant fruit. The rich, liqouricey, herby palate shows great concentration and depth, with firm tannins and spicy, herby fruit. There's lovely balance despite the size. Quite wonderful. Very good/excellent
