NIEPOORT - WHITE

 

White port is made from white grapes: Malvasia, Viosinho and Gouveio. The juice is fermented as a white wine until the fermentation is stopped by the addition of pure grape brandy. After spending one year in large wood vats the wine is transferred to Pipes (550 liter oak barrels). It is then aged in wood until at least 3 years before bottling.

 

VINIFICATION

The white grapes undergo long skin maceration, occasionally with foot treading in lagares.

Following fortification with grape brandy, the wine spends a year ageing in large old oak vats, prior to at least three years in small old oak casks.

TASTING NOTES

Brilliant golden / brown colour with a fresh nutty aroma and delicate subdued fruit. Medium sweet on the palate, interacting perfectly with the spirit which in turn gives a superb structure to the wine.
