Description

Niepoort 10 Year Old White Port is an individual and distinct White Port that is the result of blending parcels of old White Ports.

Niepoort Vinhos is a family-owned 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. “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). The Ports are made at their Vale de Mendiz winery.

This is a distinct White Port that is the result of blending parcels of old White Ports. The white grapes are a blend of Côdega, Rabigato, Viosinho, Arinto, Gouveio and other grape varieties, which undergo a long period of skin maceration and are foot trodden. Following the addition of grape brandy, the White Port spends a year in large oak vats, followed by ageing in traditional oak pipes for a period of between 7 and 15 years. Prior to bottling, a selection of the best White Ports was made and the resulting wines were blended resulting Niepoort 10 Year Old White Port.

Tasting Notes

Niepoort 10 Year Old White Port is golden in colour. This  white Port exhibits a complex aroma of dried fruits dominated by orange peel and dried figs, as well as walnuts and roasted almonds. A floral touch completes the aroma. On the palate it is very fine and balanced, with a vibrant acidity balancing it´s sweet character, interacting with the fortifying spirit to perfection and giving the wine a superb structure.

Food Pairing

Serve as an aperitif, but it also goes down a treat as a dessert wine or simply on its own at the end of a meal.
