Nat’Cool Vinho Verde Niepoort, 1 litre bottle, natural wine, light, citrus, pettillant, cloudy, pithy, delicious! A blend of Albarino, Loureiro, and other Portuguese varieties, this great little fun white served in a litre bottle opens with a slight fizz from some residual CO2,. The appearance is very cloudy lemonade like, the aromas are a little wild but mainly citrus fruits, crunchy apples and yeast abound, the palate is medium acid, fresh, fruity, the wine bounces around the moouth and leave it slightly sour, (but there is a touch residual too), clean and refreshed. A great, fun wine for Picnics, parties and Terraces in the sunshine.

Founded in 1842, the small Port house of Niepoort is now run by 5th generation brother and sister Dirk and Verena Niepoort.

Its easy to forget that it was only a few years ago that Niepoort was only sought out by a small band of faithful followers, as stock of remarkable, artisan wines built up in the cramped old Niepoort lodge in Rua Serpa Pinto in Vila Nova de Gaia. These days, with a formidable international reputation which spans all styles from aged tawny to vintage, and all points in between, demand threatens to outstrip supply. Ports are all made at the old Museu de Lagares in Vale de Mendiz, which has the only circular granite Lagares in the Douro. Niepoort's mission has always been to be a "niche player", to produce distinctive Ports and Douro wines, combining centuries-old tradition with innovation. This continues today with new vineyard projects to produce dry, natural wines in the Douro - Bairrada - Dão triangle. The importance attached to understanding soils, climates and grape varieties has led the current head of the business Dirk Niepoort down the path of Biodynamics, a practise that respects the "moods" of Nature, to find a balance between biodiversity and minimum intervention, and the wines really speak for themselves. Many of their vineyards now have organic certification, which is very much against the grain in contemporary Port making. After 150 years of doing things just a little differently, Niepoort are now highly respected for their delicious Ports and an increasing array of natural table wines.

    enjoyable. I liked the litre bottle – more fun in more or less same space in fridge. I would buy this again.

    This is a very exciting natural white – with a slight effervescence to really liven that palate. There’s lots going on , but all the aromas work well together , there’s a pear, almost pear drop quality, then floral notes, and a green apple finish. There’s a memory of excellent northern french ciders, the sort that only drink well where they are made. It’s just so much fun, great as an aperitif, or would go well with shellfish , chicken or spicy foods, particularly Indian
