Tasting Notes

The colour of the 2011 Vintage has further benefited from a cold second winter, showing a dark purple colour right up to the rim of the glass. The aroma is fine with great vinosity, notes of black pepper and dark fruits. The palate is fresh and elegant but underpinned with a lengthy tannic structure giving it great length.

Vinification

All the components for 2011 Vintage Port were trodden by foot in circular granite "lagares" at Vale de Mendiz, the Port winery. 100% stems were included in the vinification. The wines were racked soon after harvest, aged in "tonéis" in the Douro over the winter, and then moved to Vila Nova de Gaia, in March 2010. From there, they were re-tasted extensively in order to find the ideal components for the 2011 Vintage Port. The final blend then rested again in "tonéis" at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia, prior to bottling.

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!
