“Coche shows a very intense and deep mineral character. The perfectly integrated wood ensures great complexity, with a slightly salty profile and sílex notes. Elegant in the mouth, has several layers to discover, with concentration and a very firm acidity. Shows dried fruits notes, stone fruits hints and a very fine, delicate and persistent finish. To be appreciated in a Burgundy glass.”

“I was surprised it was a white with such an intense colour. On the nose daffodil is especially noted on this Niepoort Coche Branco. I noticed a smoky flavour.
I had the pleasure of taking it at a barbecue.
I was invited by a friend to try this Niepoort Coche Branco.
I had got it from a wine club.
Watch the service temperature of this white wine.
“Coche 2011, like the 2010, is also a great wine with a great character and intense mineral hints. Coche displays citrus and mineral aromas, with a variety of floral hints and great complexity. On the palate is elegant, with several layers to discover, very firm acidity and concentration. It features hints of stone fruits and minerals, and it has great persistence and length in the finish.”
