Niepoort Port

niepoort-vintage-portNiepoort’s mission is to preserve the niche player position and continue to create great Port and Douro wines, bringing together secular tradition and innovation.

While 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 Dirk 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. He has upgraded their vineyards, most now being farmed organically without the use of any pesticides or herbicides, 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.

Niepoort Port, 1991

Vintage Port (Half Bottle)

The bouquet offers a blend of black cherries, damp earth, molasses intermingled with bitter chocolate, a touch of tobacco and tarmac. The mouthfeel was quite supple and light in texture, but showed nice balance and overall harmony.

Niepoort Port, 1977

Vintage Port

From the outstanding 1977 vintage. The excellent Niepoort is one of the smallest producers of port. Their ports are sought after by collectors and port lovers.

Reviews:
"Light, bright red color. Perfume of candied red fruits and roses. Tasted of red fruits, roses and violets. More roses and violets. Some citrus peel as well, but muted. Silky, seductive and elegant. Alcohol well integrated. This was a truly amazing and luscious port, even if not what I expected. More fruit and flowers than most ports are, but just beautiful. Glad I still have one more bottle."

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

New

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

Niepoort Port, 1952

Colheita Port

This wine has light tinges of ruby in the heart of this wine that mostly show a well-evolved color. Initially there was a minty note that will delight port lovers. Concentrated flavours and good length on the finish. This wine has plenty of life left

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, 1935

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.

Niepoort Port, 1912

Colheita Port

Reviews
"This brings back a fond memory of a long lost friend, Paul Napolitano from NY. He once opened this identical Port for me years ago at his home and at the time, it was the finest Colheita I had experienced, as well as the oldest. This one was bottled in 1976 or 1977. A piece is torn off the label and makes it impossible to be certain. Dark coffee color with a greenish edge. Is this Madeira? A nose of bouillon cube, scents of sea breeze and toffee, reminiscent of a Malvasia and the richness and supple spine live up to that mindset. The palate is packed with copious caramel and fig flavors along with prunes and toffee intricately woven into a neat little package.

Niepoort Port, Non Vintage

Ruby Dum

Ruby Dum and Tawny Dee - the Niepoort 'twins' as reflected on the bottles. These wines come from the same lot, but over a five year period are aged differently so that the one is rich and ruby in style, while the other becomes paler and more tawnied. A rather novel and fascinating new approach which really works well. Both wines are very drinkable indeed.

Port coming from Niepoortland, takinginspiration from Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee of Alice in Wonderland fame - one source of grapes, separated in the port lodge either to be aged vintage style in large barrels and bottled (ruby dum); or tawny style spending extended time in small barrels prior to bottling (tawny dee).

Niepoort Port, 1992

Tasting notes: Medium depth of colour with a red rim, on the aroma starting to show some wonderful bottle age
which follows through on the palate with a mild bitter chocolate character and fresh dark fruits. Good
weight Freshness and extract on the palate leading to a spirit dominated finish.

Niepoort Port, 1970

Vintage Port

Rare dumpy bottle.

From the outstanding 1970 vintage. The excellent Niepoort is one of the smallest producers of port. Their ports are sought after by collectors and port lovers.

Reviews:
"Unbelievable bottle! So ridiculously dark. Coffee nose. Very young and dense. Seems surprisingly primary. Still some unresolved tannins. Long finish. With more time, there is an appealing confectionery aspect that emerges. I have had other bottles of this wine and they were more than ready to drink (and actually quite average). This particular bottle needs at least 10 more years of bottle age. Superb!.

A rather novel and fascinating new approach which really works well. Both wines are very drinkable indeed.

Tawny Dee acquires great wisdom and subtleness through ageing in small old oak casks in our cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia exhibiting discrete characters of dried stone fruits. This refinement is further enhanced by the years of experience of our Master blender José Nogueira.
