Niepoort 2012 White Colheita

The wine has a deep golden color. The nose is savouryand gourmand, and expresses sweet notes of peach in syrup, roasted pineapple, mango coulis, dried apricot, dried grape, quince pâté and poached pear, associated with notes of dried chamomile, lime blossom, delicate tertiary notes (wet leaves, wilted flowers, beeswax, chestnut honey in the background), as well as a fine spicy side of grated nutmeg, saffron and seeds crushed cumin. The palate is tasty, with a spicy (saffron, pink pepper, nutmeg) and honeyed (chestnut honey, beeswax) pronounced attack. We also find flavors of dried fruit (dried apricot, dried fig, dried papaya), as well as vanilla poached pear, and an oxidative side of fresh walnut and lightly toasted hazelnut in the background. The finish is quite persistent, with notes of honey, poached pear, roasted quince and a touch of fresh walnuts and infused black tea with a slight bitterness, which return at the end of the mouth. Good level of acidity and nice complexity.
