Tasting Notes

Brick red/brown appearance interspersed with orange hues with good depth of colour.

Fabulous aromas of crystalized fruit and dried apricots which come through on the palate along with a smooth well integrated nutty alcoholic character on the finish.

Niepoort

    
Niepoort ports are a Dutch family established in Portugal since the 18th Century and producing quality rather than quantity. Niepoort has been described as “the Rolls Royce of Port”.
  
My first experience with Niepoort goes back to 1975, when armed with courage and conviction, I met in Oporto about 10 different potential suppliers and Niepoort was my lucky choice. Rolf the father and then Dirk carried on supplying Hourlier Wines with constant high standards. This is our only non French product. Non je ne regrette rien!
