Notes

Rabigato, Códega do Larinho, Gouveio, Dona Branca, Viosinho, Bical and others

Niepoort are an independent family business since 1842. Through five generations, the business passed successfully from one Niepoort to the next Niepoort and in most cases older and younger generation worked side by side for a long period.

Niepoort's mission is to maintain its position of 'niche player', continuing to produce distinctive ports and Douro wines, combining centuries-old tradition with innovation. This combination has come to include throughout their growth wines from two other regions that have contributed to marking out the Douro - Bairrada - Dão triangle.

The most recent points of the triangle (also) 'produce the goods' and occupy a place that Niepoort considered important to recover, given the potential they possess, combining the undeniable legacy of Portugal's winemaking past with the possibilities of innovation.

Funny illustration 'Hidden Essentials' first created for Drink Me white wine in 2006. Since 2012, stories about Guardians can be found on bottles of Drink Me Branco.

The storyboard on the label is done by Steven Appleby, Canadian born cartoonist, and known for many drawings especially in The Guardian and Sunday Telegraph.

The current vintage has yet to be tasted, the notes below are from the 2016 vintage:
'Although this wine is still very young, it is already showing beautiful balance and harmony, with delicate, fresh and mineral aromas as well as citrus and fresh herbal notes peeking out from the background. The palate is intriguing, and shows good acidity levels. This is a white wine which is well-structured without seeming too heavy, culminating in an elegant finish with delightful notes of citrus and minerality. It offers youth, vivacity and great drinkability, making it a perfect white wine for various occasions.' – Winemaker
