Dry White Port Rabbit Niepoort NV 375ml, Off dry, rich, delicious aperitif. Malvasia Fina and other mixed Douro varieties go into this excellent off dry white port, the Rabbit! 100% foot trodden and aged in casks to produce a lovely fruity wine with delicious balance of alcohol, sugar and freshness. The soft pressing and resultant skin contact makes for a deep golden colour and the oxidative ageing adds to this and also adds extra layers of flavour and depth. This is a traditional style dry white Port, about 80mg/l of sugar so still with notable sweetness although much drier than red Ports. It is super versatile wine, goes well cool as an apero, room temp as a dessert wine and great with some spicy curries too.
