Characteristics Niepoort VV Vinhas Velhas Branco

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Niepoort VV Vinhas Velhas Branco is a white wine coupage of Maria Gomes and Bical from the DOC Bairrada produced by Niepoort in the Beiras area, Portugal.

Niepoort is a family winery founded in 1842 that produces Port wines and still wines. It is run by the Niepoort family who have worked with the Noriega family for many years to make and select the coupage for their wines. Since the very beginning, the winery has worked to unite tradition with modernity. They use traditional Portuguese techniques such as grape treading, fermentation in cement tanks or aging in pipes, 550-litre port-aging barrels, whilst also using new technologies that ensure the grapes are handled with care. They have vines in different locations, some of which are more than 100 years old, and they have their aging room, Serpa Pinta, in the town of Vila Nova de Gaia

The Niepoort VV Vinhas Velhas Branco vines are between eighty and over one hundred years old and are planted in a limestone terroir with clayey touches at almost sea level. They are trained using the Guyot system and harvested manually.

Once the Niepoort VV Vinhas Velhas Branco is vinified, it undergoes malolactic fermentation and ages in 1,000-litre, 60-year-old Mosel foudres for about 20 months.

Niepoort VV Vinhas Velhas Branco is a wine that represents the incredible lightness and complexity of Barriada. It balances the verticality of the Bical and the expressiveness of the Maria Gomes.

This winery has belonged to the Van der Niepoort since 1848, when it was ceded by Eduard Krebe, who founded it six years earlier. Currently, the company is directed by Rolf van der Niepoort and his son, Dirk, the fifth generation. It is one of the most renowned Portuguese wine companies in the world, both for its quality —only 16 vintages classified as Vintage in 60 years— and for the great personality and inimitable style of its wines.
