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.
