Conciso is the winemakers interpretation of a fine and elegant DÃO, a wine that shows the full potential and character of a very old vineyard. This centenarian vineyard, planted in granite soil and facing east on the slopes of Serra da Estrela, has mixed varieties where Baga and Jaen are predominant.

Tasting Notes:
‘40% Baga, 30% Jaen and 30% old-vine field blend. Twenty months in 250-litre old barrels. How does Niepoort manage to get such low alcohol and lovely fruit flavours? Mid ruby. Lifted sweet red cherry fruit, showing the Baga component. So fragrant. Fine, soft but compact tannins, gently chewy now but already accessible. Dry but fresh and succulent. ’ – Julia Harding MW (15th May 2017), JancisRobinson.com, 16.5/20

'Conciso 2014 is light in colour with violet tons. The aroma is fine and complex, showing a very fresh mineral character, with wild berries, spices (pepper and clove), and good notes of reduction. With medium concentration, it is appellative in the mouth with fresh fruit and silky tannins. A light, elegant and fresh wine, that stands out. A unique style from Dão, with good acidity, where the balance and harmony are evident. Long, deep, and very delicate finish. To be served in Burgundy type of glasses.' – Winemaker

Vinification
In 2014, unlike other regions, in Dão, the rainfall was low and there were very hot weeks, dry nights and sunny mornings, all excellent conditions for the harvest that began with the whites on September 10th, and continued with the reds from the 22nd onwards. The harvest was short, under ideal weather conditions and finished on the 27th September. The wine was vinified in lagar, with 50% of stems and extended maceration, but with almost no extraction. It fermented for 25 days, and aged for 20 months in an old 2500L barrel. It was bottled without any finning or filtration.
