Description

Details

Niepoort Crusted Port 2012, fine, quality Port, unfiltered. Crusted ports are a great compromise between LBV and vintage ports. It is made from 2 or 3 harvests of wine of vintage quality and then bottled with its sediment for 3 years before release. Gives deep aromas
of plum and cherry, strutured tannin and dark chocolate. Great now but will certainly age further! As the name suggests this will throw a deposit so would benefit from decanting or careful storage prior to opening.

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.
