Niepoort Ladredo Red 2012
93 pts James Suckling - Ladredo 2010 shows great freshness combine with very good concentration, with the typical aromas of Mencia, spicy, peppery and cinnamon notes, very pure fruit with cherry and red berry aromas, everything involved with the mineral stony character of the slate soils. The palate is fresh and vibrant, plenty of fruit and spices, with a present but soft tannic structure, great acidity and great length. Deep with very good ageing potential.

Winemaking:
The constant search and willingness to learn more and more, led Dirk Niepoort and Luis Seabra to the beautiful and impressive Spanish wine region of Ribera Sacra. With the help of a Spanish winemaker who knew well the region, a traditional vineyard, on the slopes of River Sil, called Ladredo, was found, planted in small terraces, with stone walls and east exposure. 2010 year was very regular year in the area, with 800 mm of rain spread during winter and spring, hot summer but not excessively and good yields. All these lead to a very gentle and balanced maturation season, with good concentration without very high sugar content. Harvest was done in the 22nd of September with good weather. Fermentation was done in open wood vat with 40% all bunches. Fermentation took 3 days to start and stayed 35 days with skin contact. The wine aged 14 months in used French oak barrels. The wine was bottle in April 2012

Grape Varieties:
Mencia,Grenacha Tinturera

17 pts Vinho Grandes Escolhas - Intense and deep Purple Color, very different and complex aromas where it dominates the floral and fruity character. It has an excellent and thin volume in mouth, which stand out the notes of wood and very well integrated to discrete combined with ripe tannins, contribute to their aromatic complexity and enrichment.
