Another classic Niepoort vintage: combining balance with superb concentration, and at the same time very fine and delicate. The wine also has a splendid rustic character giving it a wonderful individuality.
It was created from low-yielding old vines in the Cima Corgo region of Douro Valley. The grapes were trodden in “lagares” and later the Port was matured in large wooden vats and also in barrels at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia.
Concentrated aromas of ripe dark fruits, damsons and hints of black pepper. Intense on the palate and full bodied with a long rich after-taste.
It can be enjoyed now, but will become more complex with further cellaring until 2015.
