2006 Niepoort "Redoma-Reserva" Douro Branco, Portugal (Elsewhere $60)

SKU #1035850

92 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The REDOMA BRANCO RESERVA is quite possibly Portugal’s most distinguished white wine in many years. Its fat bottle signals the nod to Burgundy. The 2006 REDOMA BRANCO RESERVA is more forward the ’05, and is showing relatively well at an age when the ’05 did not. There is a touch of oak on opening, resolving into a bright and gripping wine. I’m not sure this will be as ageworthy as the brilliant 2005 as it opens completely far faster, but it is intense, with a lingering finish. It seems deep and full bodied. In the context of the vintage, it is a fine achievement. Drink now-2012." (Dec 2007)This dry white is a blend of Rabigato, Codega, Donzelinho, Viosinho and Arinto. It spent eight months in French oak and shows a concetrated and very lovely mineral and tropical fruit character with a full-bodied palate impression and layers of vanilla and more earthy notes.

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
