Description

Niepoort Rabbit Dry White Port replaces Niepoort Dry White Port and is part of the Niepoortland range of Ports from Dirk Niepoort which also includes Niepoort Ruby Dum and Niepoort Tawny Dee Ports. The Lewis Carroll inspired labels for the Niepoortland Port range are designed by the artist Regina Pessoa.

Niepoort Vinhos is a family-owned company now in its fifth generation and presently managed by Dirk Niepoort. Despite being the second smallest shippers in the trade they are second to none in quality. Already famous for their classic tawny ports, they have now joined the ranks of the great producers of Vintage Port. “Niepoort is to Vintage Port what Krug is to Champagne. They are both small houses in a world dominated by large competitors but they are producing outstanding wines which very few can match.” (James Suckling, Vintage Port). The Ports are made at their Vale de Mendiz winery.

Niepoort Rabbit Dry White Port is a rare style of dry white port, made with lengthy skin maceration and wood ageing. 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 out in small old oak casks in Niepoort’s cellars in Gaia for at least three and a half years prior to bottling.

Niepoort Dry White is made from a blend of grape varieties – Codega, Rabigato, Viosinho, Arinto and Gouveio.

Tasting Notes

Niepoort Dry White Port has a golden / brown 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.

To Serve

Perfect served chilled as an aperitif or as a long drink with Tonic Water, ice and a twist of lemon.
