Niepoort Bical Maria Gomes Branco 2017
100 plus year old vines of Bical and Maria Gomes. The vineyards are worked organically and carry the SATIVA certification.
Natural fermentation in 1000L-used foudre sourced from the Mosel with over 60 years of age.
The varieties and the calcareous rich soils naturally give this wine pH under 3.0 so the wine goes through malolactic fermentation in the foudres. 20 months of ageing in the foudre.
Light in citrus color, with the usual vibrant, expressive but austere register. The mineral notes of limestone are very evident, in harmony with aromas of fresh herbs, lemon and white flowers. Bical's austere and mineral.
Pair with white roasted meat, fish stew, and grilled white fish.
