Niepoort Douro Reserva Redoma Branco 2017

The 2017 Redoma Reserva Branco is a field blend from old vines featuring Rabigato, Códega, Viosinho, Arinto and others, aged for nine months in 20% new French oak. It comes in at 13% alcohol. This was bottled about two months before the tasting (and unfortunately was not tasted next to the regular Branco). Gloriously fresh for this big and fat year, this adds a sumptuous feel and a long and juicy finish. The wood is a little prominent now, but it receded even as I held this in the glass. It is always elegant. When tried again the next day, it was pretty stunning, but this young pup has some things to prove in the cellar. It certainly looks like a star in the vintage. It should age very well and develop along the way. I won't be surprised if we look up in 2025, and it's much more interesting than it is today
