Description

With a character reminiscent of great Burgundies, 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 honey, dried fruit, and brioche which mingle beautifully with the wine’s primary fruity aromas of apricot, citrus fruit, and hints of aromatic herbs. 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.

On the Portuguese wine scene, there is no more consensual producer than Niepoort, and the long history begins in 1842 with the first Van Der Niepoort arriving in Portugal.

As he started in the Port Wine market as a merchant, he quickly set up his business which would prove to be prosperous and future-proof.

Thus, in the 5th generation, Dirk Niepoort was born, an unavoidable producer in the world of wines, recognised as one of the most important characters who worked, and still works, on behalf of Portuguese wine. He has worked with several dozen producers, helped them to improve their wines and understand their vineyards, while also preparing his legacy with those who are always creating irreverent wines. Nowadays, Dirk Niepoort collaborates on many other projects, in practically all national wine regions and some foreign ones.
