Rabbit Dry White, Niepoort, 75cl
White port is made from white grapes: Malvasia, Viosinho and Gouveio. The juice is fermented as a white wine until the fermentation is stopped by the addition of pure grape brandy. After spending one year in large wood vats the wine is transferred to Pipes (550 liter oak barrels). It is then aged in wood until at least 3 years before bottling. Brilliant golden / brown colour with a fresh nutty aroma and delicate subdued fruit. Medium sweet on the palate, interacting perfectly with the spirit which in turn gives a superb structure to the wine.
