Niepoort Poeirinho 2015
“The 2015 Poeirinho is another terrific Baga from Niepoort this issue. His Baga wines have become my favourites in his red line-up across many regions. It was aged for 20 months in used 2,000-liter foudres and comes in at just 11.4% alcohol. This (well, with the Alagoa, although that at least seemed more open when first poured, before it shut down) is the most backward of the red Bairrada group, rather tight, a bit rustic and a little mute, needing some time to open up. That said, the fruit flavour is there in the background and it has the precision and focus of the others, with a serious backbone. This requires some patience—five years might not be nearly enough; ten would be better—and it should age exceptionally well, if well stored and sourced, of course. Eventually, this might be the best of the Niepoort reds this issue, although the Vinha da Alagoa will have some say there, but it doesn't show that way now. It still looks like a big star.”
