Niepoort Dao Rótulo Branco 2020

£16.99

A delicious White Dao from top Portuguese winemaker Dirk Niepoort

Description

In 2012 Dirk Niepoort superstar winemaker from the Douro cast his eye over to the mountainous Dao region, to the south of the Douro, buying plots of old vines. His Rótulo wines are an opportunity to use old varietals to fashion a lighter-bodied but complex flavoured set of wines.

Dirk’s very attractive Rótulo Branco offers real complexity all wrapped up in a 12% package. Dirk has been recovering some old indigenous varietals, Borrado das Moscas, Rabo de Oveha and Cerial along with the usual Encuzado grape. Fermented in stainless steel to keep its freshness.

An expressive nose of flowers, Mirabelle plums and wet stones and a peacock’s tail of flavours fill the palate with a citrus and mineral freshness.
