Niepoort is a family company now in its fifth generation and presently managed by Dirk Niepoort. Despite being the second smallest shippers in the trade they are second to none in quality. Already famous for their classic tawny ports, they have now joined the ranks of the great producers of Vintage Port. Reputations take long to establish and only when there is a genuine commitment to quality throughout the company is a name made. “Niepoort is to Vintage Port what Krug is to Champagne. They are both small houses in a world dominated by large competitors but they are producing outstanding wines which very few can match.” James Suckling, Vintage Port.
Quinta Do Passadouro 2000 is a Single Quinta Port that is drinking very well now - "From the charismatic Dirk Niepoort this supple Port is surprisingly approachable. A sweet, fruity nose with hints of liquorice is complemented by a ripe, spicy palate of blackberry and prunes. Drink 2008-2020" - 18.5/20 Jancis Robinson
The Niepoort Vintage Port 2000 is the top of the tree, the real McCoy - “The Vintages of 2000 are not aggressive but do have a good structure of tannin and a long lasting aroma. These wines are showing a great deal of power but also harmony and delicacy,” explains Dirk Niepoort, who considers the Niepoort 2000 the best vintage he’s ever made.
