2005 Niepoort Redoma Reserva Branco Douro

Post by Andy Velebil » 04:27 Fri 08 Jun 2018

Recent bottles of this I've had have shown some early oxidation creeping in, so today I pulled my remaining 5 bottles out of storage, all bought on release. While there is just a touch of oxidation, this still has wonderful minerality, pineapple, citrus fruit, and an oily texture aiding its depth. A rather long glycerin textured finish, full of that same citrus and minerality, wrap up what is still a fantastic white. Having had this since release, it's at peak and should be enjoyed with fellow wine lovers over the next year or so.
