Niepoort Drink Me White
Niepoort Drink Me Branco 2012 [75cl] Portugal

The Douro Valley is proving itself a wonderful playground for white (branco) winemakers, with great, characterful wines that nowadays are made with real zip and refreshment - in this particular case by picking in August, suppressing the malolactic fermentation and deliberately choosing fruit from high-altitude vineyards. This particular example is designed for fairly early drinking

The 2012 White has a vivid and crystal clear citrine colour. The nose is mineral, with a pronounced character of very cool white fruit aromas. In the mouth, it starts fresh, balanced and complex. The aromas are of pure white fruit, combined with smoky notes that emphasise the authenticity of this wine. It has a long finish, ending with a saltiness that is typical of the terroir
