A wonderful dark purple rim and great depth of colour characterise the wine’s appearance. The aromatic profile is dominated by superb youthful dark fruit. It is powerful on the initial attack, leading into a fresh mid-palate with beautifully seductive flavours of dark fruit. A great combination of power and elegance, ending in a bold, dry, lengthy and slightly green tannic finish. The length and structure of the 2017 vintage promises a long-lived wine with great ageing potential.

2019 Vintage Port, Niepoort, Douro Valley
The 2019 Niepoort Vintage Port has a brilliant appearance with a dark purple rim and concentrated depth of colour.

In conclusion, the primary fruit on the palate is appealing at this stage, but it’s the balanced tannic structure which indicates great ageing potential for the future.
