Niepoort Moscatel do Douro

2.500

New product

Fresh, vibrant and aromatic, this wine displays the orange peel notes typical of Muscat. On the palate, it has great body and structure but also offers an incredible lightness and freshness thanks to its high acidity. The Muscat variety is for Dirk Niepoort one of the great varieties of the world. Portugal has a long tradition of producing Moscatel, especially in the regions of Setubal and Douro – Favaios - where the variety is Moscatel Petit Grains.

Fresh, vibrant and aromatic, this wine displays the orange peel notes typical of Muscat. On the palate, it has great body and structure but also offers an incredible lightness and freshness thanks to its high acidity. The Muscat variety is for Dirk Niepoort one of the great varieties of the world. Portugal has a long tradition of producing Moscatel, especially in the regions of Setubal and Douro – Favaios - where the variety is Moscatel Petit Grains. At Niepoort the records show that the production of Moscatel began around the 1920s. Although we had a long tradition of producing it, for bureaucratic reasons it slowly disappeared. In 2000, we decided to recover Moscatel. The Niepoort style is a full-bodied wine with a good structure and high acidity level to balance the sugar content and guaranty a fresh wine.
