Quinta Baixo

About Quinta Baixo

Few winemakers command as much reverence and respect within Portugal as Dirk Niepoort, arguably the country’s most important vigneron alive today. Amongst the onslaught of notable English families setting up Port houses in centuries gone by, the Niepoorts arrived from the Netherlands to add some Dutch perspective to the region’s fortified wines. Currently under the stewardship of its greatest, most passionate and dedicated leader, Dirk Niepoort stands as Portugal’s premier vinous personality, crafting exceptional wines wherever he deigns to apply his considerable skill.

Amongst his considerable achievements in Port, for which he is undoubtedly most famed, he is particularly enamoured with and enthusiastic about his lesser-known dry red project in Bairrada – Quinta Baixo.

Struck by the potential of chalky clay soils and the native Portuguese Baga grape variety, it is Niepoort’s belief that Quinta Baixo sits upon what may be the finest terroir in the entire country.

Quinta Baixo Bairrada Poeirinho 2013 (3x75cl)

Wine Advocate (93-95)

The 2013 Poeirinho was aged for 20 months in old Mosel fuders (2500L). It was sourced from vines ranging from 80 to 150 years old. It is pretty much a monster Baga, fuller in the mouth than most, elegant and yet very powerful, with that typically fine acidity strafing the fruit and beautiful tension on the finish. For all that, it holds its balance beautifully. This is a long haul, big-time Baga. Give it a few years to settle down at the least. You won't have to worry about it falling apart for a long time, perhaps longer than I even think. There were 6,100 bottles produced. This is scheduled to be in the U.S. sometime next year.
