Niepoort Douro Coche Branco 2017
A mixed set of ancient vines. Up to 100 years old and partly root-safe. Fermentation after a short maceration on the skin and subsequent whole grape press in the used barrique, and then further expansion on the yeast in the barrel and after the first deduction on the fine yeast in the steel. Only 13% alcohol. Enormously concentrated and mineral substance, light phenolic, razor sharp and fresh and surprisingly slim. Very intense in the mouth and very precisely defined, multi-complex and overwhelming. This coche is one of the very large white wines of the Iberian Peninsula and has a huge aging potential.
