O Produtor, tasting note published in May 23rd 2016
Light and bright colour, the Teppo Peixe shows citrus and white flowers notes in the aroma. Slightly saline in the mouth, it is very delicate, enveloping and with a high acidity which allows a refreshing and crystalline finish. The light carbon dioxide present, when accompanied by dishes of Asian influence, raises the wine and works almost as a final shot to clear the palate. Light, discreet and elegant, is a very easy drinking wine
VINIFICATION The grapes come from Casa de Vilar in the Sousa sub-region, from a vineyard with Alvarinho and Avesso, and from Quinta de Val Boa, located in the Basto sub-region, where the vinification and bottling of all Vinho Verde wines, takes place at the moment. This wine was made with the varieties Avesso, Trajadura and Azal, all vinified separately in stainless steel vats and with 10 months of ageing. 9000 bottles of 0.75 l were bottled.
The Niepoort family has been creating Port Wines since 1842. The first property in Douro was bought in 1987 and Dirk Niepoort started a new Era in the company with the creation of the first Redoma red in 1991. In the last years Niepoort took on the great challenge of interpreting other soils and climates and acquired two properties in other regions, Dão and Bairrada. Discover the Niepoort Triangle which express the different terroirs: Schist (Douro), Limestone (Bairrada) and Granite (Dão).
