The Story

Vintage Port maintains Niepoort's tradition of making balanced Ports with great concentration, being at the same time fine and delicate. We strongly believe we can make a Vintage Port with potencial to last for decades. Vintage Port must be bottled within two or three years of the harvest date.

The magic of Vintage Port is different in every phase: as a young wine it captures the youthful fruit characters. Then, after 20 years or more, the effects of the slow bottle age integration are revealed and finally, after many decades, the spirit dominates the wine. Vintage Port is amazing in all the three phases. Half sweet taste, combining with its strong structure. Firm and long tannins, but balanced as a whole. Please, note that Vintage Port needs to be decanted. Perfect with "Queijo da Serra", Stilton or other blue cheeses and with egg desserts, like the portuguese "Pão de Ló".

Written Notes

Good looking normal size bottle, in an excellent condition and has by the neck level. Colour is opaque, and looking evolved and deep. On the nose it is intense, open, opulent, fresh, refined, complex and charming. The taste is harmonious, rich, focused, vigor, elegant, fragrant, refined, and medium-sweet, warming, with silky tannins, full-bodied, with balanced structure and mature. On the palate it is layered and has spice, smoky, port-like, truffles, perfumed, glycerin, dried-fruit, blackberry and chocolate flavours. The finish is endless, spicy, vibrant, pure and extensive. This wine is transparent, impressive, outstanding and masterpiece. I paid around 1k-3k€ a bottle. Perfectly stored bottles are still very worthy and will last well for another 20-30 years and decant at least 2h before tasting. Good value for money.
