Portugal has a long tradition in the production of Moscatel, namely in the regions of Setúbal and Douro, more precisely in Favaios, where the existing grape variety is the Moscatel Petit Grains.
At Niepoort, Moscatel has been produced since the 1920s, but for bureaucratic reasons it has disappeared until it has stopped producing completely.
For Dirk, Moscatel is one of the great grape varieties in the world, so we decided to recover, in 2000, Moscatel production. The Niepoort style is characterized by a full-bodied wine, with good structure and a high acidity, allowing to obtain a light and fresh wine.

VINIFICATION
In 2000, we had a low production, due to a poor flowering, allowing, however, a good relationship between film and pulp. There was only a single rainy day, on September 28th, with the harvest taking place in ideal conditions, with cool nights and fantastic days. The grapes were harvested just before they were completely ripe in order to guarantee a high level of acidity. The wine fermented in mills with 100% stems, then aged in used (old) barrels and 10% in new French oak barrels.

TEST RESULTS
Fresh, vibrant and aromatic, it presents notes of orange peel typical of the Moscatel variety. With a good body and structure, it shows incredible freshness and lightness due to the acidity.
