Details

Niepoort Colheita Port 2005, fine, quality Port, elegant, traditional. Colheita are basically single vintage Tawny Ports and are excellent value as they tend to loose out to Vintage wines. Niepoort Colheita Port ages for a minimum of 7 years in lodge pipes (pipas, 500-550 litre old barrels), they have to show the vintage year and the year the wine was bottled on the label. Niepoort do Colheita very well and only in the best vintages.

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.
