Niepoort (Portugal) 10 yr Old Tawny

91 Points - Robert Parker
“Tawny in colour, with aromas of dried apricots and crystallized tangerine peel well integrated with a nutty character. The palate reveals dried fruits with a fiery spirity finish. With a great structure and a long finish. This offers amazing aromas of orange and lemon peel, with hints of toffee, caramel and honey. Fullbodied and luscious, with lots of sweet fruit and a long subtle finish that goes on and on. This is really the benchmark for 10-year-old tawnies.”

Tawnies with an age indication of ’10 years’ are blended from different wines averaging 10 years. The prolonged ageing in small old oak casks (550L) confers the characteristic tawny colour. The main features of an aged Tawny are the complexity of aromas, the freshness and a persistent bouquet and refinement. The balanced marriage of the different characteristics and diverse ages is the art of the Niepoort’s Master Blender, José Nogueira.

Niepoort (Portugal) Ruby Port 750ml

85 points - Wine Enthusiast
“Ripe, intense, dry fruit-flavoured ruby Port that has depth of fruit and well-integrated spirit. A great, everyday drinking Port.”

The Ruby Port ages an average of three years in large wooden casks at Niepoort cellars, in Vila Nova de Gaia. The grapes come from old vineyards in Cima Corgo region of Douro Valley. Niepoort’s Ruby is fresh, young and fruity. An expressive Port with great character. Ruby keeps well for several years, although the wine will not improve with age. No decanting is necessary since the wine contains no sediment.

The Niepoort family were Port shippers of Dutch origin that have been making Port in the Douro Valley since 1842. It is a relatively small Port house but with a big reputation! Despite being the second smallest shippers in the trade, they are second to none in quality.

Originally, the company used to buy its grapes from small growers, but since the end of the 80s Niepoort has invested in their own Quintas (vineyards). This is largely thanks to its 5th generation brother and sister team,
