Coche Branco Niepoort 2017

£82.50 GBP

Balance, elegance and authenticity are the cardinal virtues of Dirk Niepoort’s wines. In this, his fascinating flagship white, Dirk carefully melds an array of indigenous Portuguese varieties to find the sweet spot between body and acidity; freshness and ageing potential. 

What makes this balance possible is the age of the vines (80+ years) and the altitude at which they’re grown (600m). The captivating 2017 has all the complexity and texture to age gracefully, plus the bright purity of fruit and delicious saline minerality to be savoured now.
