Keep it natural, baby.
Slightly cloudy in appearance, this is a white wine with plenty of personality; it is fresh, vibrant, with citrusy and vegetal notes. Uncomplicated and straight-forward, it offers high acidity and a light carbonic sparkle on the palate, ending on a saline, crystalline and refreshing finish. It is best enjoyed in a traditional ceramic malga cup paired with traditional Portuguese “petiscos” appetizers.
When the Niepoort family moved from Holland to the Duoro region of Portugal in 1842, the rise of one of the great Port houses of Oporto began. And in 1997, as the fifth generation to make fortified wines for the family business, Dirk Niepoort began a brand new rise. Considered a true Renaissance man, Dirk continues to make Port using the same traditional methods as his ancestors, while also leading the way as one of Portugal’s most innovative, creative and exciting producers of dry table wine.
Dirk started making table wine because, well, he likes to drink table wine. As it turns out, he is rather good at it. During the past 25 years, Dirk has put both the family estate and the entire region on the map for wine. He is a pioneer of modern approaches—creating artistic labels and new marketing and selling practices—but with a healthy respect for traditional, classic methods of winemaking. Niepoort spares no expense in creating wines that match their high-quality Port siblings.
