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!
