Wine Of The Week – Douro Niepoort Dialogo 2010 – Portugal

DOURO - NIEPOORT DIALOGO WINE

The Dialogo is a red blend made of Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela and others. This wine is a pleasant, easy drinking red, but with complexity, mineral notes and great depth, found in classic Douro wines. It is produced from vineyards located in the Cima Corgo sub-region. It is well balanced with soft tannins, which make this wine full of Douro character.  The fermentation occurred in stainless steel vats, with 8 to 15 days of total skin contact. Only 25% of the wine aged in used French oak barrels and in bigger old wood containers of 3500 L and 500 L during 14 months. The illustration on the label by Luís Afonso tells stories of Diálogo since its very first edition.
