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.
Niepoort excel at Colheita (single vintage tawny) Ports. And this is one of their finest recent vintages. And, of course, it needs no decanting, and keeps well once opened.
Aged in lodge pipes (pipas, 500-550 litre old barrels) for a minimum of seven years, colheitas not only have to display the vintage on the bottle, but also the year the wine was bottled.
