Niepoort 1982 Vintage Port

Availability: In stock

Solid red appearance with good depth of colour. On the aroma, initially austere and closed, but with time, some notes of spice and pepper come through. Sweet fruit on the palate and revealing great freshness and a lengthy firm structure.

More information:

Vintage Port maintains Niepoort's tradition of making balanced Ports with great concentration, being at the same time fine and delicate. They strongly believe they can make a Vintage Port with potencial to last for decades. Vintage Port must be bottled within two or three years of the harvest date.

The magic of Vintage Port is different in every phase: as a young wine it captures the youthful fruit characters. Then, after 20 years or more, the effects of the slow bottle age integration are revealed and finally, after many decades, the spirit dominates the wine. Vintage Port is amazing in all the three phases. Half sweet taste, combining with its strong structure. Firm and long tannins, but balanced as a whole. Please, note that Vintage Port needs to be decanted.

This Dutch house was founded in 1842 and is in its fifth generation. Dirk Niepoort is one of the Douro boys and a pioneer of quality table wines in the Douro Valley. Niepoort is perhaps better known for its classic, well regarded port, but its dry red table wines combine freshness, acidity and balance with elegance and substance. In their own words their aim is “To preserve the niche product while making great table and port wines”.
