HALF BOTTLE 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.
