This is perhaps the most iconic of Niepoorts ports. Dirk Niepoort calls it the "younger brother" of the Vintage Port as the grapes and vinification methods are the same. Both are made from a selection of full-bodied wines of high quality produced from a single year. The time this wine spends in large wooden vats aging (4-6 years) allows it to mature and settle down, being ready to drink young and right after bottling.
Essentially the wine is elegant in style, but the palate is somewhat of an enigma -initially the fruit and elegance on the aroma comes through on the palate but with low extract but superbly balanced and fresh, but the finish is somewhat robust, firm and with a dry tannic finish, it will be interesting to see this wine age, no doubt, in an elegant manner.
Critical Acclaim: James Suckling
Fascinating aromas of blackberries, sweet tobacco, minerals, mushrooms and flowers. Bay leaves too. Full-bodied and medium sweet with ultra-fine tannins and a long, intense finish. Very fine indeed. Unfiltered and aged four years in barrel before bottle. Niepoort didn't make a vintage Port this year. Barrel Sample: 92-93 Points
