Niepoort, Vintage Port 750ml 2009Portugal, Douro
All the components for our 2009 Vintage Port were trodden by foot in circular granite "lagares" at our Port winery in Vale de Mendiz. As usual for a Vintage of this quality, we included almost 100% stems in the vinification. The component Ports were racked soon after harvest, and aged in "tonéis" in the Douro over the winter, before moving them to Vila Nova de Gaia in March 2010. From there, we re-tasted extensively in order to find the ideal wines for a 2009 Niepoort Vintage Port. The final blend then rested again in "tonéis" at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia, until bottling in May 2011.
Tasting Notes It has a voluptuous nose with great fruit, but also very spicy and peppery. On the palate, this Port is highly concentrated, with huge structure, and massive, but sexy, tannins. A Vintage Port of power, elegance, and balance. Once again, at Niepoort, we believe that we have produced Vintage Port to last for decades to come.
