Niepoort Drink Me Nat Cool Branco Vinho Verde 2021 (1-Liter)
Nat Cool is about producing low-intervention, terroir driven wines from indigenous varietals. The grapes are grown in two areas of Vinho Verde: Amarante and Lousada. The vines are on average 25-30 years old.
The grapes mainly stem from the sub-region of Lousada. The wine was made according to the old-fashioned method: a few grams of sugar were retained in the wine so that it would ferment again in bottle. Malolactic fermentation also took place in bottle.
Niepoort Drink Me Nat Cool Branco was produced using a minimal intervention winemaking approach and is naturally turbid as it fermented in the bottle.
It presents lemon yellow hues with subtle hints of green.
Its aromas are reminiscent of the wines that used to be produced in the Vinho Verde region long ago, with yeasty, citrussy and nutty notes. The palate boasts outstanding acidity, a delicate mousse which renders it vibrant and some saline flavours on the finish. This is an intentionally uncomplicated wine: lightly shake the bottle before opening and enjoy with traditional Portuguese snacks!
