This vintage continues Niepoorts tradition to create balanced ports with great concentration
while simultaneously fine and delicate. Once again, at Niepoort, we believe that we managed to
produce a Vintage Port to last for decades...
After several dry winters, the 2006/2007 winter was most useful in replenishing dwindling water
reserves. In 2007 the harvest initiated at Niepoorts historic winery in Vale de Mendiz on Friday
14th of September. Apart from a brief thunderstorm on the 16th of September and the odd light
shower at the end of the month, the harvest was carried out under excellent conditions.
Fermenting musts exhibited dark colours with spectacular purple hues and very good acid
The Niepoort 2007 has benefited from a second winter to further close up its dense purple colour.
On the aroma dark fruits are wonderfully contrasted with slighty green nuances and great finesse.
On the palate, medium sweet, which combines well, with a very tight structure. The taste exhibits
a firm tannins and length but with great finesse in evidence.
