Product Overview

The non-vintage Niepoort Tawny Porto is aged for 4.5 years in small, oak casks at the Niepoort cellar in the coastal city of Villa Nova de Gaia. Many other tawnies on the market are aged inland in the Douro valley in much warmer cellars to speed up the aging process and make the wines seem older sooner. Niepoort does not do this and sticks to the cooler aging temperatures in their coastal cellar so as not to burn any of the flavors of the port. It is brick red / tawny in color, with delicate nutty aromas and a hint of dried fruits. On the palate, very well balanced with a youthful fruity, luscious character, which integrates well with a long spirited finish.

Appellation: Douro DOC

88 Points - Wine Spectator
"Shows good power to the dried raspberry, cherry and brambly flavors, with focused accents of milk chocolate. Offers a broad, spicy finish. Drink now. 500 cases imported." -KM, 12/15/14

88 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"In the hands of master blender Dirk Niepoort, even a straight tawny style has depth of flavor and intensity. The wine has red fruit, layered with concentrated acidity, a hint of wood aging, and remains fresh and fruity." -RV, 6/1/12
