Niepoort Vintage Port 2017

Grapes
Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Francisca and others. Duoro Valley, Portugal.

Producer
An independent family business since 1842, through five generations.

Tasting notes
A wonderful dark purple rim and great depth of colour characterise the wine’s appearance. The aromatic profile is dominated by superb youthful dark fruit. It is powerful on the initial attack, leading into a fresh mid-palate with beautifully seductive flavors of dark fruit. A great combination of power and elegance, ending in a bold, dry, lengthy and slightly green tannic finish. The length and structure of the 2017 vintage promise a long-lived wine with great ageing potential.

Press Quote “An incredible dark, rocky purity with a long savoury finish, the fruit is intense but not ultra-fruity. This reminds me of the rocky Douro from which the wines come. Sheer beauty with hidden power. Glorious, very long, totally moreish even now.” Julia Harding, Jancis Robinson. " Dry, stern and long on the finish, this is brilliant. It is hard to think of any basis on which this is not perfection just now—Niepoort says it is the best he’s ever made. It’s certainly the best I’ve seen from him, and it is a leading candidate for “Wineof the Vintage.” Mark Squires, Robert Parker Wine Advocate.
