New product

The wine displays a sumptuous ruby colour and, for a vintage as balanced as 2012, offers floral aromas, dark berries, deep complexity and some body. The wood is well-integrated in the delicate mineral character of the wine. On the palate, it shows intense concentration, with firm tannins and great structure. Its minerality and superb acidity lend the wine freshness and balance, with a very long and vivacious finish – it’s the power of the Douro and the elegance of the Dão in perfect harmony!

The wine displays a sumptuous ruby colour and, for a vintage as balanced as 2012, offers floral aromas, dark berries, deep complexity and some body. The wood is well-integrated in the delicate mineral character of the wine. On the palate, it shows intense concentration, with firm tannins and great structure. Its minerality and superb acidity lend the wine freshness and balance, with a very long and vivacious finish – it’s the power of the Douro and the elegance of the Dão in perfect harmony! This is a wine which will undoubtedly age gracefully. Inspired by an old idea of his father Rolf Niepoort, Dirk joined Alvaro de Castro to blend the “perfect wine”. The innovative approach was the union of two different wine regions Dão and Douro. The blend of the different characteristics created an impressive wine with the freshness and elegance of Dão and the concentration and fine tannins of Douro. The first Dado was born in 2000, a blend of 50% Dão wine, from Quinta da Pellada and 50% Douro wine, from Quinta do Carril. Making the wine was actually the easiest part of the process. The challenge was to overcome all the legal problems related to the label approval. As a table wine the label could not mention: region involved , year of harvest, year of bottling, or the history of the wine... Nevertheless, the result was a lovely perfumed wine, with raspberry fruit aromas, richness and freshness on the palate, firm tannins, bright acidity, and with a creamy feel to the whole. Dado was produced in 2000, 2001, 2003, 2004 and the distribution was limited to Portugal. Doda started in 2005 for the world market.
