Niepoorts ›Redoma Tinto 2004‹ mit 92/100 Punkten bewertet

Die bekannte Zeitschrift »The Wine Advocate« hat in ihrer Ausgabe 169/2007 folgende Verkostungsnotiz zum ›Redoma Tinto 2004‹ von Dirk Niepoort veröffentlicht, der dort mit 92/100 Punkten bewertet wurde (nachfolgend der Originaltext):

„The sunny 2004 “Redoma” Tinto is sourced principally from Quinta de Napoles. The “Redoma” proprietary brand was first released in 1991 as Niepoort’s first Douro table wine. This wine is made from a mixed varietal blend (principally Tinta Amarela, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Franca) from a 60-year-old vineyard, although some older vines were used as well. It was raised for eighteen months in French oak. Cool, refreshing, and beautifully balanced, this is friendly and charming. The sweet mid-palate is young and primary. It is mid-weight, with notes of herbs around the edges. With air, the wine, which seemed rather flat, becomes brighter and livelier as the acidity and ripe tannins appear, and the finish finally shows a little grip, along with some bursts of acidity that were not always as friendly as the rest of the wine’s demeanor. Still, this is very young and in need of settling down. Rather debonair, this is also nicely textured. It became more interesting and intense with air, showing more tannins, acid and earth. It showed well the next day, too, although it never seemed as distinguished or as interesting as its brilliant sibling, Niepoort’s 2004 Batuta, or likely to have as much upside in the cellar. There were approximately 1,500 cases made. Drink 2008-2017.“
