Vintage 1997, 2005
Grape Varieties Mixed Douro Vineyards
Niepoort excel at Colheita (single vintage tawny) Ports. And this is one of their finest recent vintages. And, of course, it needs no decanting, and keeps well once opened.
Possibly the most under-rated Port category in the UK, but deserves to be much better known. And compared to vintage ports, top quality colheita can be excellent value.
Aged in lodge pipes (pipas, 500-550 litre old barrels) for a minimum of seven years, colheitas not only have to display the vintage on the bottle, but also the year the wine was bottled.
