Dirk Niepoort is one of the most significant figures in modern Portuguese wine, not just in terms of his pioneering winemaking but as a champion and benefactor of smaller, quality driven producers across the country.

Aged for 4-6 years in oak barrels the 2015 LBV has intense and complex aromas of predominantly red fruits, spice and dark chocolate. A very elegant and expressive nose is echoed by a full-bodied palate with firm tannins and a lively acidity which lends the wine freshness and balance.
