Details

10YO Tawny Port Niepoort, ten year old tawny port, sumptuous, full bodied, aged fortified wine. This excellent 10 year old is full of deep, nutty flavours, hints of dried apricots and a wonderful rich palate. We love the wines from Niepoort and this is no exception. It spends 10 years ageing in small oak casks before being skilfully blended by their master blender. Niepoort always work with respect for nature and are increasingly using organic production, though this 10 year old has no certification.

Founded in 1842, the small Port house of Niepoort is now run by 5th generation brother and sister Dirk and Verena Niepoort. Its easy to forget that it was only a few years ago that Niepoort was only sought out by a small band of faithful followers, as stock of remarkable, artisan wines built up in the cramped old Niepoort lodge in Rua Serpa Pinto in Vila Nova de Gaia. These days, with a formidable international reputation which spans all styles from aged tawny to vintage, and all points in between, demand threatens to outstrip supply. Ports are all made at the old Museu de Lagares in Vale de Mendiz, which has the only circular granite Lagares in the Douro.
