2010 Niepoort Fabelhaft. Douro. Portugal. 13%

IMG_1241

Approx $9 for a half bottle, found in a wine shop in Vienna and tried this late December in Vienna.

Quality wine in half bottles seemed relatively easy to find in Vienna.

Love the red wines of Dirk Niepoort from Portugal. Only wish they were easier to find in Australia.

Ripe, spiced & full on the palate.

Cleansing acid lets this wine finish on a crisp note.

Medium bodied.

Perfect for sipping on while waiting for baby to wake up from his afternoon nap.

 

About Perth Wine Enthusiast

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.

  1. I’ve had earlier vintages and loved them. Great wine, again, from Douro.

  2. Agree, Dirk is doing great things with his wines
