Another classic Niepoort vintage: combining balance with superb concentration, and at the same time very fine and delicate. The wine also has a splendid rustic character giving it a wonderful individuality.

'A prodigious effort from a small house that's becoming one of the Douro's best. The fruit is massive; huge and inky and filled with blackberries and chocolate. Yet for all its size, it finishes with finesse-filled layers of flavor that fold in mint and black pepper notes.' – Wine Enthusiast, 97/100 (Cellar Selection)

'Smudgy deep ruby. Intensely red fruited on the nose. So much bright fruit even now. Plus an attractive earthy duskiness. A thick layer of fine-grained, dry-textured tannins. Dark and rocky on the palate, full of Douro savoury terroir and the sweetness almost inconsequential.' – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 19/20

'This has hit its stride, with a panoply of singed hazelnut, melted black licorice, Christmas pudding and steeped fig, boysenberry and blackberry fruit flavors all stretched out through the long, spice-infused finish, showing lovely freshness at the end. A gorgeous Port with another decade of evolution to go.—Blind 2000 Vintage Port retrospective (March 2021). Drink now through 2035.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 95/100

'Ruby-purple, a bit more saturated than the Secundum. Brooding aromas of crushed black fruits, licorice and spices. Very ripe, thick and dense, with compelling sweetness of fruit. Bright, integrated acids give this very lush, fleshy, palate-coating wine excellent tensile strength. Finishes impressively long and bright, with finely grained, mouthdusting tannins. This has a terrific kernel of fruit and a three-dimensional palate feel.' – Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, 93/100

'Concentrated aromas of ripe dark fruits, damsons and hints of black pepper. Intense on the palate and full bodied with a long rich after-taste.' – 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.
