Niepoort Port

niepoort-vintage-portWhile several Port Houses were founded by British families emigrating to the Douro valley, some families from other countries moved out too – the Niepoort family, for example, arrived from the Netherlands in the 19th Century.

Since the company’s founding, it has passed through five generations of the Niepoort family, now in the hands of brother and sister Dirk and Verena Niepoort. Dirk runs the firm with a dedication, passion and enthusiasm which has made him one of the most popular figures in the trade. Formerly more well-known for their Colheita (barrel-aged tawny) Ports, Dirk has striven to improve the status of Niepoort’s Vintage Port wines. They have placed great importance on understanding the soils, climates and grapes that go into their wines, which has led Dirk down the path of Biodynamics: respecting the “moods” of Nature, to find the balance between biodiversity and minimum intervention. He has upgraded their vineyards, most now being certified ‘organic’ as the company continues to buck industry trends, and is himself an advocate of ‘treading’ the grapes by foot for maximum colour and flavour.

Niepoort Vintage Port’s unique style can be appreciated when very young, but still will mature to become as long-lived as any other. Production is tiny compared to other, larger producers so a bottle of Niepoort is a rarity. Their mission is to preserve their niche player position and continue to create great Port and Douro wines, bringing together secular tradition and innovation.

*** 96/100 Vinous Neil martin ***
*** 19.5/20 - Jancis Robinson ***

All the components were trodden by foot in circular granite lagares with 100% stems. The wines were racked soon after harvest, aged in "tonéis” in the Douro over the winter, and then moved to the cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia in March 2018.

A wonderful dark purple rim and great depth of colour marks the appearance of the Vintage Port.

The aroma is dominated by a superb youthful dark fruit. It is powerful on the front palate, leading into a fresh middle palate with very seductive flavours of dark fruits.

Niepoort Port, 2016

Bioma Vinha Velha 1 x 75cl Bottle

This 2016 Vintage Port Wine from Dirk Niepoort has bucked the trend by not offering a 'Standard' 2016 Vintage Port. He has chosen to release a 2016 Niepoort Bioma Vinha Velha. This is his single vineyard release from his ancient and emblematic Pisca vineyard.

The Pisca vineyard has always played an important part in making Niepoort vintage port, and used to be blended entirely in. Most of the vines in Pisca (a field blend of the classic port varieties, and a few wild cards) exceed 80 years in age. All the components for the 2016 Bioma Vinha Velha Vintage Porto were trodden by foot in circular granite lagares at the Vale de Mendiz Port winery.

Niepoort Port, 2015

BIOMA Vinha Velha Vintage Port, 1x37.5cl- Half bottle.

This 2015 Bioma “Vinha Velha”, Vintage Port Wine from Niepoort is a single vineyard Vintage Port from aged vines at Vinha da Pisca (mostly + 80 years old), which is cultivated organically. A hot site, which produces impressive tannins, it formed the backbone of Niepoort Vintage Ports for many years. However,the best parcels were set aside for this wine in 2013, 2011, 2009, 2008 and (known then as Pisca) in 2007. Like Niepoort Vintage Port, Bioma was 100% foot trodden with 100% stems. It was then aged in pipes (550 litre)and will be bottled in the third year after the harvest (2018) which, says Niepoort, is what happened in the “old days” when wines were shipped to England in pipes, and bottled later.

Niepoort Port, 1983

Vintage Port

"Niepoort is to Vintage Port what Krug is to Champagne. They are both small houses in a world dominated by large competitors but they are producing outstanding wines which very few can match." (James Suckling, Vintage Port).

Niepoort is a family company now in its fifth generation and presently managed by Dirk Niepoort. Despite being the second smallest shippers in the trade they are second to none in quality. Already famous for their classic tawny ports, they have now joined the ranks of the great producers of Vintage Port.

Vintage Port must be bottled within two years of the harvest date and be 100 per cent wine from that harvest.

Superb brick red, green on the rim. Wonderfully dry citrus fruit hints, smoky flavours and orange peel in the nose. Dark orange chocolate, butterscotch on the palate. Rich and citrus, elegant, very well structured with a fresh, firm concentration and great length. A superb wine.

Niepoort Port, 1957

Colheita Port

"A green rim with a tawny core, sediment too. A deep, spicy nose shows dried spice and fleshy tamarind. In the mouth, it’s very concentrated, spicy and lively, with liquorice and darker treacle toffee notes. There’s a trace of bitterness to its slightly spirity finish, but it’s deliciously spicy with plenty of vigour." Sarah Amhed, The Wine Detective

Garrafeira Port

Bottled 1955 decanted 1984

Port Forum review
With 2 to 3 hours in the decanter, the heat and sherry aromas blow off. The colour transformed from lightish tawny to tawny with a clear red hue. Wonderful light and fresh nose, giving some citrus, star aniseed and still some light silty aromas. Very delicate on the palate, again with some fresh and semi-dried citrus, almonds, and a wonderful core of light red fruit (rose hip and fresh strawberries). Some exotic spices and milk chocolate on the otherwise dry (and slightly short) finish. Delicate, frail and very special. A well deserved 93 points at this stage.

Niepoort Port, 1945

Vintage Port

A rare example of the Niepoort 1945 Vintage.

Rated 97 points from the Wine Spectator (in 1990)… 'Another Port shipper once mistook this extraordinary wine for one 15 years younger. It is very youthful, with caressing sweet fruit flavors. Medium garnet with a ruby center, blackberry, black pepper and smoke aromas, medium-bodied, with sweet blackberry.'

Voted as the best of the Niepoort vintages by thePortForum.com - Review: 60% opaque, red. Wonderful mature VP, still with structure. Mint and cherry, though fruit fading. Fabulous. Widely acclaimed, and overwhelmingly voted, wine of the ni

Niepoort Port, 1940

Garrafeira Port

A very rare bottle of 1940 Niepoort Garrafeira Port Bottled 1945 - Decanted 1970.

Stored undergound at constant temperature for several decades in a private cellar.
A unique masterpiece from Niepoort.

Currently, Niepoort is the only Port house which produces Garrafeira-style Ports.

The second generation of the Niepoort family, in the late 19th century, had the fortunate idea of buying from a german glass factory in Oldenburg about 4000 glass balloons (in the form of old apothecary bottles) of dark-green glass with varying capacities from 8 to 11 litres. Eduard Marius van der Niepoort, Dirk’s grandfather, gave purpose to the demijohns by bottling the best wines of the 1931 harvest, thus creating the type “Garrafeira Niepoort”.

Colheita Port

Reviews
1935 Niepoort Colheita Port – (bottled ,,,) – exceptionally perfumed nose, on the palate this is tremendous, the balance is perfection, round mouth-feel, incredibly long…even longer than the 1937! Nice high acid keeps this so fresh. Absolutely gorgeous wine with a delicious toasted pecan finish. The wine lacks nothing…it does not get better than this. Perfection! After we tasted this, Dirk told us it is his favourite Niepoort wine, and only a handful of bottles of this remain at the winery. 100 points - Roy Hersh = FortheLoveofPort.com

Niepoort Port, 1934

Colhieta Port 1934 Vintage

99 Points Robert parker

Reviews
"The 1934 is an example of a wine in bottle a long, long time—fortunately
Niepoort’s Colheitas do have normal, long corks. If this handsome beast is this
dense, concentrated and powerful now, I can barely imagine what it must have
been like when it was bottled. My mouth waters to think of it. Remember, too,
that this had less than 50 years in cask. What would a version bottled today be
like? Besides the notable concentration and viscosity, it has powerful acidity to
cut through its palate and make it seem bright and vibrant as well, with some
brandy in the background.
