Winemaker Notes: 

"This is a red wine from the Douro. Dirk challenged his cellar master Luis Pedro to make a Douro red to fit in the NatCool line. Primata is his baby. The high elevation, largely north-facing vineyards give it freshness and crunch. It is foot trodden in lagares where it continues to ferment and then finished in steel where it naturally stabalizes. This is a Douro red like you have never had!

Of a light ruby color, the Primata Natcool offers a slightly reductive and ”funky” note but with a distinct mineral driven aromatic profile which reflects its provenance. The palate is deeply refreshing and austere, with beautiful tension, floral notes of rockrose and a purity which follows through to a dry, spicy and persistent finish." 

About the Producer: 

"Nat Cool is the brain child of Dirk Niepoort. Besides Dirk’s activities as owner of Niepoort Wines and Ports, he also owns a small wine distribution company in Portugal.

He created Nat Cool as a response to a market (both in Portugal and abroad) that wanted fun, easy going, Naturally-made wines that could be enjoyed every day - at home, by-the-glass in restaurants, out on a fun picnic, etc. The project started in the appellation of Bairrada, working with the indigenous varietal, Baga. As a rule, this varietal produces, big, dark, tannic reds, but Dirk found a way to produce fresh, easy, glou-glou Baga in One-Liter bottles with 12% alcohol and minimal Sulphur added." 

Alcohol: 11%
