Niepoort Port, 2011

10 Year Old Tawny

Description and Reviews:
** 91 points Wine Spectator **

There's lots of chocolate, hazelnut and dried fruit flavours in this elegant tawny, which is very suave, with a long finish that's filled with cream, sandalwood and luscious white fruit flavors. (6/ 2012)

** 90 points Wine Enthusiast **
A finely balanced wine that combines rich red fruit flavors with acidity, a slight tang from the spirit and a feeling of warmth and roundness. It finishes with an almond note and fresh acidity. (6/ 2012)


This Tawny is blended from different wines averaging 10 years. The skilful ageing and blending of the different Tawny Ports is the art of Master Blender José Nogueira.

The prolonged ageing in small wooden casks confers the characteristic Tawny colour. The main features of an aged Tawny are the complexity of aromas, the freshness and a persistent bouquet and refinement. After dinner, old Tawny is a good match with cheeses and especially chocolate based desserts. It can also be drunk as an aperitif, served at room temperature or lightly chilled.
