Description

A great example of Portuguese blending from Niepoort Wines with grapes from the Douro region. Rabigato, Codega do Larinho, Gouveio, Dona Branca, Viosinho, Bical, and other varieties were fermented in stainless steel before spending a further 6 months maturing on fine lees without batonage. 

Austere and deeply mineral, this fresh wine shows herbaceous and citrus aromas with a youthful character on the palate which promises great ageing potential. A wine of great finesse and elegance, ending in an electric finish which lingers enticingly. Try with grilled or oven-baked fish, white meats creamy light pastas and pulses. 

Suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians.

Founded in 1842, Niepoort Wines is now run by 5th generation Dirk Niepoort. Small in nature, it has built a formidable international reputation for its port and still wines, with demand threatening to outstrip supply.
