Niepoort Vertente Bee
The Vertente BEE is a wine which aims to put bees and their role as pollinators on a pedestal – they are, after all, facing the threat of extinction in many parts of the world. At Niepoort we recognise that bees form an important part of our ecosystem, and we would like to participate actively in the efforts to keep this species alive.
A beautiful, deep ruby colour matches the wine’s expressive aromatics characterised by minerality as well as dark chocolate and fruits of the forest notes. The wood is well-integrated, providing some hints of smokiness and spice. Tightly structured, profound, with a good backbone, this wine is elegant and fine on the palate, with well-integrated tannins, balanced acidity and a long finish.
