Niepoort, Redoma 1996 Douro

17

Lots of crystallised white fruit, honey, honeysuckle, plus a load of petrichor and oil from the age. Creamy, soft and balanced, with a similar tone to old white Rioja, and lovely salinity. The oxidative character is controlled and integrated, with herby character and loads of dried flowers on the finish. A love letter from the past. (RH)
