Niepoort Tinto Sempar
After several projects with various partners in the Alentejo region, Dirk Niepoort decided to literally take matters into his own hands and explore Portalegre in the Alto Alenteje region on his own. “Sempar” means “unequalled”, “unique”, “incomparable” – a name which perfectly represents the style of Niepoort’s wine philosophy: uncomplicated wines which give maximum expression to the vineyards from which they are created.
Dirk Niepoort holds great admiration for the area around Portalegre in the Alentejo region. The elegance and balance of its granite and schist soils as well as the altitude of the Serra de S. Mamede mountain range lend the wines a multifaceted acid structure which allows for great versatility.
Sempar: a unique balance between the heat of the Alentejo and the freshness of the Serra Mountains.
An exuberant nose offers deeply expressive fruit. However, this is not just a fruit-driven wine, it also possesses tremendous freshness and an impressive bouquet. The Sempar has structure and balance, underscored by pronounced acidity as well as tannic precision. The very long finish points towards excellent ageing potential.
