*** 91 points Wine Spectator ***
20 year old tawny ports are blended from a range different wines averaging 20 years. This prolonged ageing in small wooden casks confers the characteristic Tawny colour and imparts a deliciously mellow flavour profile. Niepoort 20 Year Old Tawny is one of the finest examples of this style available, possessing a beautiful balance between sweet primary fruit and developed savoury nuttiness. Brick red-brown in appearance, it displays indulgent aromas of crystallized fruit, dried apricots, hazelnut and toffee. Sweet, intense and velvety smooth, it has exudes a compelling flavour medley that includes assorted nuts, fruit cake, coffee and vanilla. Perfectly integrated and harmoniously balanced, this stunning example is best enjoyed slightly chilled with cheese or nut based desserts.
Excellent - Please note that this is 20 years ageing designatio, the year does not appear on the bottle.
