'Niepoort's Late Bottled Vintage Port from the now-legendary 2017 vintage is all about structure and restrained power. It opens up with lush red and black fruit, minty spice, earthy notes and a saline minerality. It offers up a concentrated yet precise palate, with fine-grained, grippy tannins, a long finish, and incredible quality of spirit. This is unbelievably fresh and pure, and intense in the best way. The LBV is very pretty now, but will gain complexity and depth over the next decade.' – Jolette Steyn, Wine Cellar (4 April 2022)

'Dark ruby in colour with a red rim, this LBV brings dark chocolate aromas to the foreground, along with fruits of the forest and a spicy character. It offers medium weight on the palate with firm structure and acidity providing superb freshness and ending in a spicy, warming finish. The wine is drinking beautifully now, with great freshness and primary fruit in evidence, but it will also benefit from further cellaring for a couple of decades.' – Niepoort

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.
