More information

The vivid ruby red Niepoort Fabelhaft Douro Tinto shows purple reflections and shimmers in the glass with medium density colour. The lively fragrant nose of this red wine cuvée from Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela and other grape varieties convinces with fresh, deep and very intense aromas of wild berries, juicy blackberries and some plum. Sweet spices and spicy tea leaves blend harmoniously with the balsamic character of Fabelhaft Douro Tinto.

On the palate, the Fabelhaft Tinto reveals an elegant, voluminous and youthfully fresh taste with a perceptible mineral profile. A beautiful, lively fruit acid and soft tannins complete the balanced palate feeling.

In the Fabelhaft Tinto, not only the content but also the appearance of the red wine bottle is remarkable. For this, Dirk Niepoort chose a story by Wilhelm Busch, currently that of the raven Hans Huckebein. His life came to a bad end, not least through the consumption of alcohol, and has coined the term "unlucky raven" to this day. Fables like Huckebein's are the reason why Niepoort named this wine series Fabelhaft - and they taste like that!

With Fabelhaft Tinto, Dirk Niepoort has proven that red wines full of character from Portugal are possible at a fair price. Not only that, with his Wilhelm Busch label he has also created a wine that is immediately recognizable.

Vinification of the Fabelhaft Tinto

The harvest starts at the beginning of September, when the grapes for the Fabelhaft Douro wines are harvested with a focus on freshness, acidity and fruit. Overripe grapes should be avoided for the Fabelhaft Douro Tinto.

After selecting the grapes in the cellar, the grapes were destemmed, crushed and fermented. After the fermentation the wine matured to 15% for 12 months barriques of French oak (second allocation).

Sehr guter Portugieser.

Auf der Suche nach einem Roten für einen entspannten Freitag Abend wurde mir von Vinello dieser Wein vorgeschlagen. Danke Vinello, ich war sehr zufrieden. :)

Fabelhaft Tinto von Niepoort ist seit Jahren top

Fabelhaft Tinto von Niepoort ist seit Jahren top. Sicher ein Massenprodukt, aber die Qualität ist immer gleichbleibend. Ich mag diesen Wein und wurde noch nie enttäuscht. Vinello hat übrigens einen korkigen Wein anstandslos kostenfrei ersetzt. Sehr guter Service!
