Niepoort Batuta 2016 is a deep and concentrated wine, a little more so than other vintages. On the nose it offers aromas of berries as well as delicate floral nuances and a mineral character underlined by a touch of oak. On the palate it is distinguished and elegant with an acidity that rests on a firm structure of tannins. The end is long, elegant and seductive.
Niepoort Batuta 2015 is the most elegant and light Batuta vintage. It offers austere aromas of forest fruits in perfect harmony with the wine’s minerality. Its time spent in the barrel gives it light touches of wood and spicy nuances. On the palate it is complex, silky, with plenty of vigor and tension, but it is also subtle with a good balance of concentration and acidity.
