While its youthful and intense colour is slightly lighter than that of the 2012 vintage, this wine offers deep aromas, great complexity and a crystalline minerality. It impresses with its purity and finesse, delighting with fresh red berry notes as well as hints of spice. On the palate, the wine is fresh and velvety, vibrating with tension. The balance between its minerality and tannin structure results in an incomparable complexity and elegance, culminating in its lasting, elegant and expressive finish. It is “chewy” without being heavy – a wine that takes us on a journey to a bygone era.

The grapes from the “Torre” vineyard have always been intended for the “Batuta”, as they add to the complexity and depth of this wine in a very special way. However, in 2012, Dirk Niepoort decided to fulfil his dream and vinify this unique vineyard separately for the first time. The TURRIS is therefore a wine from the Cima Corgo region, more specifically from a very old South-facing vineyard whose vines are more than 130 years old and grow completely untrained. After maturing for 20 months in over 60-year-old Fuder barrels originating from the Mosel region, the wine then spent a further 18 months maturing in bottle.
