Niepoort Charme 2018

75.00

Another excellent wine from Niepoort. Charme is all about elegance and balance, achieved by taking special attention to the smallest details during the entire wine-making process. Made in traditional stone lagares with 100% grape stems, Charme’s elegance is achieved using grapes from very old vineyards in Vale de Mendiz, on the banks of the Pinhão river.

Pair it with mushrooms and game dishes, such as partridge or pheasant

Tasting Notes from Pinto Wines

Colour  Brilliant light ruby
Nose Delicate aromas of cherries and raspberries along with elegant earthy forest floor notes and hints of tea leaves
Palate  Fine and intense, with superb freshness and a very elegant structure with velvety tannins. With only 10% of new oak in the final blend, the subtle structure stemming from the wood integrates seamlessly with the fruit and acid-driven freshness
