Niepoort is an independent family business since 1842. Despite being the second smallest shippers in the trade they are second to none in quality.
Colheita Ports are Tawny Ports from a single vintage, aged in wood for at least seven years before being bottled. The Niepoort Porto, Colheita 1997 is wonderfully refined and elegant; full and silky in body. In the mouth it's very much alive, marked by a vibrant acidity and great volume. It presents caramel, honey, toffee, coffee, cherries, almonds, dried fruit, cedar, apricots and peaches integrated with smoke notes with a long creamy and very pleasant finish. Great with dulce de leche bread pudding.
