The Niepoort family has been creating Port Wines since 1842. The first property in Douro was bought in 1987 and Dirk Niepoort started a new Era in the company with the creation of the first Redoma red in 1991. In the last years Niepoort took on the great challenge of interpreting other soils and climates and acquired two properties in other regions, Dão and Bairrada. Discover the Niepoort Triangle which express the different terroirs: Schist (Douro), Limestone (Bairrada) and Granite (Dão).

The label is by artist Leonora van Staden from Stellenbosh. Ubuntu is an ethic or humanist philosophy focusing on people's loyalties and relationships. The word has its origin in the Bantu languages of southern Africa and is seen as a classical African concept.

The current vintage has yet to be tasted, the notes below are from the previous vintage:
Vivid ruby color, of medium concentration. Vibrant on the nose, scented with fresh and very expressive wild fruit notes. Spices and tea leaves harmoniously combine with a balsamic profile. On the palate, this vintage is more elegant than the previous edition and has a markedly mineral profile and a long finish. It has good acidity and soft tannins and it's wonderful balance prevents it from being too heavy.
