‘The NV 10 Years Old White Port is a field blend bottled in 2018 with a long cork. Drier than usual this year, it is still not austere. There's a hint of richness and sugar on the finish. That may blow off as time goes on, to some extent. What's impressive here is the concentration and the power. This is a lot of wine for a 10 Year White. Dirk Niepoort said to me that this could easily last 50 years, but it may certainly change in character. Let's start here and see where it goes. We'll reconvene around 2060 or so and see how it is doing. This is about as good as a 10 Year White gets. 2018-2055’ – Mark Squires, Wine Advocate, 92/100

‘That dried grasses aroma that was also in the Rabbit Dry White (perhaps the result of skin maceration?) as well as rich but dusty/stony apricot. This tastes so dry, firmly textured, very serious. Deep, fine-grained, the tannins giving as much freshness as the moderate acidity. Sour, fresh and almost savoury on the finish. Great texture. 2019-2029’ – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20

Producer information The Niepoort family has been creating Port Wines since 1842. Dirk Niepoort, fifth generation, is the head of the business after his father, Rolf’s retirement in 2005. Dirk is a pioneer of table wines in Portugal and, as with all Dirk’s projects around the world, his focus is on traditionally made wines that offer elegance while showcasing terroir. Dirk ‘helped transform the region and the way the world thinks about wine’ says Wine & Spirits Magazine about Dirk and his role in the Douro. His wines transcend the extreme heat of the Douro and display great freshness and elegance.
