Dry WhiteDry White

Niepoort Dry White is made in the tradicional style with long skin maceration. The final blend includes different wines aged in oak casks with an average of 3,5 years.

Vinification

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.

Tasting Notes

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.
