Triangle Wines is a new and exciting project launched by one of the superstar producers in Portugal, Dirk Niepoort. This charming white is a blend of three native varieties – Bical, Maria Gomes and Cercial – from an old vineyard in the Bairrada DO. Grapes are hand-picked, de-stemmed and pressed into inert vessels where fermentation takes place. The wine undergoes a complete malolactic fermentation and is then aged for 24 months in stainless steel tanks.
The resulting wine is beautifully balanced and complex displaying notes of stone fruits with a touch of crunchy pineapple, a hint of hazelnut and chalky, saline minerality. One of our favourites in the shop!
