(2012) Julia Kemper, a lawyer by profession, has a passion for organic issues and when she had the opportunity to restore the family's vineyards, in the Dão region, converted them to 100% organic farming, with family friend Dirk Niepoort as winemaker. The blend is 50% Touriga Nacional, 25% Tinta Roriz (Spain's Tempranillo), 15% Alfrocheiro and 10% Jaen, fermented in lagares before 12 months in French oak barrels. A serious, sinewy wine with meaty aromas and cedar and deep-set fruit. On the palate it is a touch austere perhaps, suggesting maybe a little time in the cellar will allow it to expand a little and loosen up, but undeniable concentration and quality.
