Niepoort Port, 2011

Vintage Port Single Bottle

Description and Reviews:
This blend of several Cima Corgo vineyards & (old field blend) varieties including, among others, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Amarela, Sousão and Touriga Nacional was 100% foot trodden in granite lagares with 100% stems. The wine was aged for 2 years in “toneis” and some pipes. A vibrant Port in colour and on the palate with lovely florality – violets – and black pepper lift to its well defined its sweet, ripe, juicy and intense swathes of berry and plum fruit. Long and persistent with a ripe but palpable chassis of tannins. Already so charming and elegant such is its exquisite balance – built for the long haul.

The glass containing the Niepoort Vintage is almost overflowing with fruity aromas – damson, cassis, tobacco and cigar box all beautifully defined. With aeration there is a very appealing sense of Bordeaux-like austerity that comes forth. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, a slight savoriness infusing the tertiary black fruit, and superb structure on the reserved, quite aristocratic finish, which offers a kick of spice on the aftertaste. Wonderful.Neil Martin - WIne Journal 01/06/13
