Niepoort Dry White

Niepoort Dry White NV

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalThis dry white is a blend of Côdega, Rabigato, Viosinho, Arinto and Gouveio from Douro's Covelinhas and Pombal vineyards and vines upward of 30 years. After fermentation in open lagares, this aged in small old oak casks for 3.5 years before release. It is on the drier side of White Ports, with a lovely wash of salinity that counters the golden raisin, savoury marmalade, honeysuckle, dried oolong tea, broken stones, salt-roasted almonds, finishing with creamy warming marzipan notes. Lovely solo sipping (on the rocks) and ideal for a Port Tonic. Fantastic value.Tasted: 14 January 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 17.95 consignment Producer: Niepoort (Vinhos) S.A.Distributors: Vintage Corks Limited
