Description

Another classic Niepoort vintage: combining balance with superb concentration, and at the same time

very fine and delicate. The wine also has a splendid rustic character giving it a wonderful individuality.

Tasting Notes

Dark red in colour, with intense aromas of dark fruits along with a light herbaceous character. On the

palate massively concentrated, dense but fresh, with solid tannins, finishing long and persistent.

Great to taste now, and will develop wonderfully over the next decades.

To fully benefit from its qualities we recommend it be decanted before serving.

Serve with soft cheeses or blue cheese.

Vinification

A small crop, due to poor flowering but with high skin to juice ratios as a result. Apart from one day

when it rained on 28th September the harvest was carried out under ideal conditions with fine days

and cool nights. The grapes from old vines in the Cima Corgo region were trodden in lagares and later

the port was matured in large wooden vats at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia and bottled in the

autumn of 2002.
