The Story

Colheitas are dated Tawnies aged in small casks. The minimum age requirement is 7 years, but the tradition at Niepoort is to age several more years before bottling. The wine takes on a Tawny hue. Wood and nutty tones are evident on the palate due to the wine’s slow ageing in old casks. Colheita goes well with dry fruits desserts and the portuguese "Leite Creme queimado". As a starter, the combination with foie gras is impressive.

Written Notes

Ähnlich 2009 von Dirk Niepoort mitgebrachter älteste Portwein des Gutes, ein . Der war mit seiner sehr klaren, bräunlichen Farbe noch so unglaublich frisch und balanciert, da war nichts spritiges, nichts oxidatives, einfach nur Massen besten Kaffees, eine süchtig machende Süße, die mit der kräftigen Säure in völliger Harmonie verbunden war, das war nicht nur reifer Port in Perfektion, das war eine echte Port-Legende - 100/100.
