The Late Bottled Vintage by Niepoort is revealed in a wonderfully intense ruby violet colour. This port wine is vinified from Sousão, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Cão, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Francesa, Touriga Nacional and other red grape varieties.
The bouquet is dominated by multi-layered aromas of red cherry fruit and spices, complemented by a delicate pepper note and hints of dark chocolate. The wonderfully concentrated, voluminous but at the same time soft and elegant port wine reveals firm tannins. The beautiful acidity gives this port wine freshness and balance. This port is rounded off by a pleasant, long finish.
Vinification of Niepoort Late Bottled Vintage
The manually harvested grapes of the Niepoort winery come from the vineyards of the Cima Corgo region in the Douro Valley. These are first carefully selected, then pressed and the resulting mash with the stems in traditional lagares is crushed and fermented with the foot. This port then matures for four years in large oak barrels and vats in the cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia.
Food recommendation for the Port Niepoort LBV
We recommend this port wine with fried spicy meat such as veal, lamb, pepper steak or game, with chocolate dessert, especially with bitter chocolate and cheese (cheddar, gouda, brie, blue cheese).
