Grape Varieties Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca & others
Vertente uses the younger vineyards (25 years old) of Quinta de Nápoles, on the slopes of the river Tedo, where Touriga Franca and Tinta Amarela are predominant. Some older vines (60 years plus), bringing Tinta Roriz and others, contribute to the elegance of this wine, while the younger vines give it youth. Despite being made to be consumed young, it does has great ageing potential.
From the 2015 vintage, to celebrate their 175 year anniversary, Niepoort collaborated with London-based artist Louis Masai to produce a special edition Vertente 'BEE' label. Each bottle comes with a sachet of wild flower seeds.
