Dirk Niepoort - Drink Me NAT’Cool! Tinto (1000mL)
Region: Bairrada, Portugal
Description: This is a low intervention wine from an innovative producer. A cool start to the growing season allowed the grapes to retain some nice acidity. Tasting reminiscent of field strawberries, dried roses and some spice. The wine also expresses its Atlantic influences, with a noticeable minerality, reminiscent of a fresh maritime breeze off the ocean. Delicate and light with some lingering tannins that can be served slightly chilled.
Pairs with: Simple grilled squid or seared tuna, not overly spiced roast chicken or pork
