2019 Niepoort, 'Coche', Douro Branco, Douro Valley, Portugal MAGNUM


You cannot mention Portuguese wineries without talking about Niepoort. A leading producer, firstly for their Port wines, but for some years now they have also been well known for their red and white wines made in the Douro region. The current owner, Dirk van der Niepoort, is responsible for making accessible wines with an authentic Portuguese character that are popular around the world.

Niepoort Coche comes from vineyards lying on the right side of the Douro river at an altitude of about 600 metres above sea level. These are old vines aged over 80 years old that grow in mica shale soils and are cultivated using environmentally friendly agriculture. The harvest is manual with a careful selection in the vineyards.

Once the Niepoort Coche grapes have been taken to the winery in 25 kg boxes, they are pressed at night and the resulting must is left to rest for 48 hours. Then fermentation begins in new and used 228 and 550 litre French oak barrels. It spends 12 months there until bottling.
