Niepoort, Dry White Port
Niepoort Dry White is made in the traditional style with long skin maceration. The final blend includes different wines aged in oak casks with an average of 3,5 years.
The white grapes undergo long skin maceration, occasionally with foot treading in lagares, with fermentation carrying on to near dryness, before the addition of pure grape brandy. Ageing is carried in small old oak casks in our cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia for at least 3.5 years before bottling.
Golden/brown in colour with a delightful aroma of nuts and almonds which comes through on the palate with a fresh concentrated spirity finish, from extended ageing in small old oak barrels.
Pale gold. Med aroma intensity w. ripe pineapple, apricot, peach & honeydew melon. Vanilla wood & hot spirity notes. Raisin & caramelised apple. Fully developed. Sweet. Rich w. buttered peach, apricot jam, pineapple, red apple jelly & lime peel. High alc, med acid & a sultana-laced m. finish.
