Niepoort 10 Year Old Tawny Port
91 Parker Points - "This is a lovely 10 Year Tawny, elegant in the mid-palate, but complex, precise and focused"
The Niepoort family emigrated from the Netherlands to Portugal in the 18th century, and today, Dirk Niepoort runs the firm with a dedication and enthusiasm that makes him one of the most popular figures in the wine trade.
"The NV 10 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2015 with a long cork. This is a lovely 10 Year Tawny, elegant in the mid-palate, but complex, precise and focused. There's a bit of a bite on the finish, giving it some length to go with the flavor. The next day it was more about power, with considerable intensity of old-tawny flavor as well, more than I normally see in a 10 Year Old. This is a fine one for the category."
A full-bodied and delicious Port wine, classically tawny in colour, with aromas of dried apricots and crystallized tangerine peel well integrated with a nutty character. Made using a blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Amarela, Sousão, Tinta Roriz. Drinking excellently now, and if opened, you could easily sip on it for a few months.
