Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Redoma represents the Douro as it is; wild with strong character, capable of giving us structured
dark coloured wines, with good acidity full of complexity and personality, yet balanced and
elegant, which develop with years in the bottle like vineyards slowly grow ing old in the area.
Redoma is produced from several old vineyards located in the Cima Corgo Region, the geographic
centreof theDouro region; mainly north facing ones, here we have the best of both world's
concentration from the old vineyards and freshness and elegance from the high north facing
vineyards. The blends in the different vineyards include Tinta Amarela, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz,
Tinto Cão, and several others. At Niepoort we feel Redoma is the perfect Douro ambassador.
"The 2007 REDOMA Tinto, retasted from bottle in the USA for the first time here, is a Douro blend from old vines (60-120 years) aged for 22 months in French oak. I really liked this Redoma, which is showing even better now than when I had it in the Douro last year. It adds a layer or two of depth to the Vertente, sports better structure, and will likely age well, as these have a tradition of doing. At roughly half the price of the Batuta, it is deeper and more complex this year. For all that, it remains graceful and elegant, in Niepoort’s style. This won’t impress with size, weight or pure power, but its mid-palate depth is better than you think at first, its balance is impeccable and it is beautifully structured. It drank beautifully the next day, its structure more obvious than ever. This is what you expect from Niepoort at his best in a good vintage. This has a pretty good chance of becoming the best ever Redoma. There were 2,578 cases produced, of which 100 were imported. It is approachable now, but for best results, hold it a year or two. Drink now-2025."

winemaking areas trickle down the country's narrow shape, bordered by the Atlantic on the west and Spain on the east.
