2015 Niepoort Quinta do Baixo VV Branco


The Quinta do Baixo Vinhas Velhas comes from century-old vineyards, with Maria Gomes and Bical planted in a mostly limestone terroir. Due to its high natural acidity, these vineyards produce wines with a pH below 3.0, allowing for the possibility of malolactic fermentation, which takes place in 1000-liter fudre with over 60 years of history, from the Mosel region.

The VV showcases the extraordinary lightness and sophistication of Bairrada.

Tasting Note: Light in colour, with a vibrant, familiar, expressive, and very austere character. The limestone notes are very prominent, enveloped in aromas of lemon, spices, and white flowers. In a more generous year for fruit, the austere and mineral profile of Bical is in perfect balance with the expressiveness of Maria Gomes. On the palate, it impresses with its lightness, yet full-bodied and with a lot of strength. The citrus acidity elevates the wine to a unique level, fresh, complex, very refined, and elegant. With a deeply mineral finish, it presents notes of dried fruits thanks to the long fermentation in barrel. A serious, distinguished white that should be enjoyed in Burgundy-style glasses.

Experience the independent family business, passed successfully for five generations from one Niepoort to the next, with older and younger generations working side by side for a long period. We eagerly anticipate the sixth generation, ready for a future of close collaboration.

Dirk Niepoort, part of the fifth generation, leads the family business, following the retirement of his father, Eduard Rudolph Niepoort. Since his studies in Switzerland, Dirk has been passionate about wine and has brought innovation to the traditional Niepoort brand.

Niepoort strives to maintain its status as a "niche player" by crafting unique ports and Douro wines that blend centuries-old customs with modernity. This combination also encompasses wine from two other regions, the Bairrada and Dão, which have contributed to shaping the Douro - Bairrada - Dão triangle. The newest points in this triangle also "deliver the goods" and hold a significant place for Niepoort, as they possess immense potential by combining the rich heritage of Portugal's winemaking history with the potential for innovation.
