About

91

The 2019 Vinho Verde “Dócil” from Dirk Niepoort is composed entirely of Loureiro, grown on granite. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel and given five months aging on its fine lees in tank, prior to bottling. It does not go through malo. The 2019 version is bright and complex, jumping from the glass in a fine blend of lime, green apple, white flowers, a nice touch of brininess and a fine base of stony minerality. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and has a touch of CO2 for bounce on the backend, with an excellent core of fruit, fine focus and grip and a long, zesty finish. This is very good Vinho Verde. 2020-2028
