Details

Drink Me Port Series Tawny Dee Niepoort half bottle, fruity, fresh, young tawny, very easy drinking. The unusually named Tawny Dee, brother to Dum, is classically trodden and fermented in granite lagares and then aged in port pipes (pipas, 500-550 litre old wooden barrels), so as to accelerate the oxidative development. Although aged for only 2-3 years, the flavour development is excellent and Dee shows delicious fruitiness with fresh and dried fruit and a delicate oxidative nutty character. The little half bottle of easy Port makes a great accompaniment to a plate of cheese after dinner and is also a nice stocking filler gift at Xmas!

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.

    We're sending Tawny Dee out as a christmas gift to our clients this year which meant a big order. Buon Vino offered top quality customer service and were so helpful in allowing us to buy in bulk. They went the extra mile to get our order out as soon as possible and we're ever so grateful. The port itself is beautifully designed and a perfect size for a sweet small present. Thanks so much guys, we'll be back!
