Details

Conciso Branco Dao, Niepoort, biodynamic wine, Encruzado, Bical, rare grapes, Dao Portugal, vibrant, minerally, complex and intellectual dry white. Made from biodynamically farmed grapes of Encruzado, Bical and Malvasia Fina, this fresh, minerally yet textured white has plenty to offer. The grapes are from old vines (60-100 years) on a granite soil at 400-600m altitude, giving amazing freshness and concentration. The wine is full and rich but the minerality gives it a very clean, zippy mouth feel, ripe stone fruits, herbs and nuts and a long length, delicious wine.

To say that Dirk Niepoort has revolutionised wine production in the Douro Valley would only risk understatement. Since his first experimental wine in 1990, and then first commercial production of Redoma Tinto a year later, Dirk has explored terroirs and experimented relentlessly. And with all winemaking (excepting Charme, and of course Port, both at Vale de Mendiz) conducted at the almost futuristic Quinta do Napoles, a plethora of different offerings are meticulously overseen by a dynamic and energetic team.
