Niepoort Coche Vinho Branco 2019
"With a character reminiscent of great Burgundies and a production of a mere 4 700 bottles, the Coche is Niepoort’s most sought-after white wine. When it comes to its aromatic profile, our aim is to complement the fruitiness with the complexity provided by an ageing period in wood (in lightly toasted, first-fill French barrels from the François Frères cooperage).
On the nose, this barrel maturation makes itself felt through notes of hazelnuts and brioche which also mingle beautifully with the wine’s primary fruity aromas of yellow plums, peaches, citrus fruit and some vegetal hints.
The palate boasts a structure not unlike that of a great Burgundy, with an elegance, moderate alcohol and deep aromatic complexity.
A long and lingering finish is supported by a beautiful acidity which promises great cellaring potential." -Winery notes
