Tasting Notes

A brick-red appearance with medium depth and a light orange rim. On the nose a slightly smoky/vanilla aroma from the very old seasoned pipes casks follows through with aromas of marmalade, raisins and dried apricots. Medium-bodied on the palate, with a mellow lengthy spirit-driven finish.

Vinification

The 2008/2009 agricultural year was marked by low rainfall in the winter months, January was the month with the highest rainfall. While the average temperatures in general were similar to previous decades, however, the month of August was on average more than 2°C warmer even though the first eleven days of the month were relatively fresh compared to a normal year in the region.

The 2009 harvest was not easy for Niepoort, with very high temperatures in August and September. The 2009 harvest allowed them to obtain Ports of great quality and complexity.

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!
