Nat Cool naturally “cool and funky”, is an innovative concept created by Niepoort, a movement of unity between several producers with the aim of creating light and easy to drink wines.
They created a wine, reminiscent of the “cloudy” wines of old, which were bottled very early with some residual sugar and in the presence of fine lees, to be refined in the bottle and originate carbon dioxide.
Slightly cloudy in color, it is a white with a lot of personality, fresh and vibrant in citrus and vegetable notes. Uncomplicated and straightforward, with high acidity and a slight gas that gives you life and joy in the mouth test. Austere finish, salty and crystalline, offers a clean and refreshing finish. Perfect if drunk in traditional Malga accompanied with traditional Portuguese snacks.
