Niepoort launched its first Rosé in 1999, trying to prove that a quality wine can also be rosé. Fermented in barrels and from older vines, Redoma is a balanced rosé more appropriate for drinking at the table than for a summer afternoon. With the freshness of a white and the complexity and structure of a red, it offers a different perspective on rosé. The great novelty of this wine is its light colour, reminiscent of the rosés from the French region of Provence.

The viticultural year of 2014 at Quinta de Nápoles was characterised as a year of lower quantity but higher quality. Everything indicated an early year, due to the large amount of water accumulated during the winter and spring. The maturation phase occurred early and allowed the beginning of the harvest in August. At Quinta de Nápoles most parcels were harvested over a period of good weather between 23 August and 21 September. Coming from the vineyards located near Quinta de Nápoles, the grapes for Redoma Rosé were harvested on the 2nd and 3rd September. After careful selection, they were pressed rapidly at a low temperature to avoid oxidation and any great extraction of colour. The must was fermented in 228 litre French oak barrels for approximately one month, followed by ageing in stainless steel for 6 months. It was bottled on 6 March 2015.

With a very light and bright salmon colour, it shows an intense aroma with notes of red fruit, white flowers and spices. The toast of the barrel merges with a very cool mineral profile. The palate is fresh and delicate, with lots of fresh fruit and vegetable notes. Very gastronomic, with a good balance between acidity and smoky notes. Long and persistent finish.
