'The 2019 Redoma Branco is a field blend from old vines featuring Rabigato, Códega, Viosinho, Donzelinho and others, aged for six months in 20% new French oak. It comes in very dry and at just 12.2% alcohol. This is another super Redoma Branco, which is easily one of the very best values in the Niepoort lineup every year. It's never a big and fat wine, so if that's what you're looking for, look away. It has wonderfully expressive fruit and a subtle concentration that is impressive, however. Plus, it has beautiful structure and persistent but controlled tension on the finish. It's always bright, never shrill, and it handles the modest wood well. There is a slight smoked-toast nuance, but not a lot. It's something to watch, or give this some air. This is a lot of wine for the money if you like the fresh and understated style. Niepoort always says these will age for a couple of decades. It probably will, but let's take that in stages. His track record of saying such things and backing it up has been pretty good, though, and I have seen some nicely developed and intriguing ones. There were 60,000 bottles produced from old vines (60 to 80 years). Drink 2021-2036.' – Mark Squires, Wine Advocate, 92/100

'An elegant, medium-bodied white, with toasty aromas marking the lemon curd, baking spice, white blossom and ripe pear notes. Minerally undertones gain traction on the long finish. Rabigato, Côdega do Larinho, Viosinho, Donzelinho Branco and Gouveio. Drink now through 2024.' – Wine Spectator, 91/100

'Stony, flinty, smoky citrus – grapefruit and lemon/lime. Just very slightly reductive but those aromas seem to be more to do with the varieties and the site, enhanced by the winemaking, no doubt. On the palate, unexpectedly grippy in texture, lean and sinewy but not thin, with a very very slight – and attractive – toasty/char flavour (but not oaky). Great freshness and precision and very long. The slightly chewy aftertaste is really delicious, adding depth to a light-bodied but intense wine.' – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20

'The Redoma Branco 2019 offers an exceptionally fresh and austere character. A complex nose combines subtle citrusy and floral notes with the minerality typical of mica-schist soils. The palate is silky, with an outstanding acidity which lends the wine a firm backbone. This light-footed Redoma Branco 2019 impresses with its balance and ageing potential. The finish is linear, dry and expressive.' – Niepoort
