Tasting Notes

An intense brick-red colour with chestnut hues accompanies mouth-watering fresh aromas of candied fruit, particularly plums and figs, as well as a touch of smokiness. The palate is refreshing, with good acidity and abundant fruit, leading to a dry, elegant and seductively long finish.

Vinification

After several very dry winters, 2006/07 allowed the replenishment of the water levels in the soils. In 2007 at Vale de Mendiz, the harvest began on 14 September, and despite a brief storm on 16 September and light rainfall towards the end of the month the harvest took place under excellent weather conditions.

During fermentation, the musts were already showing powerful and dense colour as well as beautiful natural acidity, which allowed Niepoort to forgo any significant adjustments. The grapes were foot-stomped in lagares and aged in the cellars at Vila Nova de Gaia, in 550L pipa barrels. At Niepoort, they bottle our Colheita Ports after a minimum maturation period of 10 years, and the 2007 vintage was no exception, with the first bottling taking place in March 2018.

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!
