Description

This is perhaps the most iconic of the Niepoort ports, Dirk Niepoort calls it the ‘younger brother’ of the Vintage Port. All grapes are handpicked and then in the traditional way foot trodden. The wine then spends 4 years in large wooden vats for ageing, which allows it to mature and settle – this makes it ready to drink young and right after bottling. To enjoy fully it is recommended that this port should be decanted.

The port is deep ruby in colour, with a complex and concentrated aroma of red and black fruits. Notes of pepper and dark chocolate. On the palate it shows great concentration and volume with a firm structure but a superb soft silky texture. The great acidity provides freshness and balance to the wine. Long and pleasant finish. The wine can be enjoyed now, and will become more complex with further cellaring for a couple of decades.

“Ultra-traditional foot-trodden LBV from a super-ripe year: Fresh cherry and raspberry fruit, wonderful finesse, spicy tannins rising in the mouth yielding to fresh berry fruit on the finish. Bottled with a driven cork. Drink now or keep 10-15 years” Decanter Magazine December 2014

Food matching: Bitter chocolate desserts. Cheddar, gouda, brie. Spicy dishes with red meat, lamb or steak.
