Batuta 2011

Vinen er unik. Næsen er letkrydret og med røde og sorte frugter samt lidt chokolade. Smagen er super intens og koncentreret, men ikke for bombastisk. Der er mineralske toner og masser af finesse i eftersmagen. Høj klasse!

Batuta bliver ikke produceret hvert år. Druerne kommer fra den lille gård, Quinta do Carril, hvor stokkene er mellem 70 - 100 år gamle og fra fra 100 år gamle stokke tæt ved Quinta de Nápoles. Dirk Niepoorts idé med Batuta er, at kun når alle forudsætninger er til stede skal vinen produceres. Han ønsker heller ikke, at vinen bliver for tung og bastant, og derfor vælges bl.a. druer fra marker i 750 meters højde. Her findes mere naturlig syreindhold i druerne.

Vinification

2011 was characterised by early flowering and the whole growing season took place earlier, with harvesting starting much earlier than usual. However, the vines planted at higher altitudes ripened more slowly and the wines eventually revealed moderate alcohol content and good levels of tartaric and malic acid.

The harvest began earlier than usual, on the 5th September. After careful selection, both in the vineyard and the winery, fermentation took place in cone-shaped stainless steel vats and wooden barrels, with maceration for around 60 days. The wine aged for 22 months in French oak barrels, with 25% new oak, where malolactic fermentation took place.

Tasting Notes

Batuta 2011, with its young and vivid colour, has a distinctive nose which is both powerful and complex. A full-bodied wine, with a great concentration of black fruits and fine and delicate tannins. It is dense with a notable structure, it boasts a harmony which does not fail to impress during wine tasting. It has great persistence and the promise of a long life in the bottle.
