Part of the ‘Niepoortland’ collection, taking inspiration from the Alice in Wonderland story, this white port compliments the other DUM and DEE ports. With far less residual sugar than for normal ports (about a third, at under 50 g/L), the White Rabbit can be enjoyed chilled, as an aperitif, or perhaps as a tall drink mixed with tonic or soda. It’ll also freshen-up mature nutty cheeses.
Grape Varieties: Côdega, Rabigato, Viosinho, Arinto and Gouveio
Vegan/veggie, low sulphur, wild yeast.
Rabbit Dry White is made in the traditional style with long skin maceration. The final blend includes different wines aged in oak casks with an average of 3,5 years. Rabbit Dry White is lovely if served chilled as an aperitif or as a long drink with Tonic Water, ice and a twist of lemon.
The white grapes undergo long skin maceration, occasionally with foot treading in lagares, with fermentation carrying on to near dryness, before the addition of pure grape brandy. Ageing is carried in small old oak casks in our cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia for at least 3.5 years before bottling.
Golden/brown in colour with a delightful aroma of nuts and almonds which comes through on the palate with a fresh concentrated spirity finish, from extended ageing in small old oak barrels
