More information

Sousão, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Cão, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Francesa, Touriga Nacional and other red Portuguese grape varieties are used for the Tawny 10 Years Old Port of Niepoort. 

In the glass, this Tawny Port shimmers in an appealing  brick red with orange highlights. The rich bouquet reveals intense aromas of dried apricots - underpinned by orange peel and nutty hints. This is accompanied by aromas of toffee, caramel and honey. On the palate, this port wine has a full-bodied and lush character, which is accompanied by a fiery spirits aroma. The long-lasting finale comes with a nutty touch. 

Vinification of Niepoort Tawny 10 Years Old Port

The single vineyards Vinha da Pisca, Vale do Pinhão and Ferrão of over 60 years old vines are the origin of the harvested grapes for this port wine.

In Lagares, the harvested material is tamped with the foot according to a traditional method and fermented therein after the mash fermentation process. Once fermentation is complete, this port matures for many years in small wooden barrels with a capacity of 550 litres (pipas). The barrels are stored in the cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia. This tawny contains up to 50 different wines, which are between 3 and 50 years old. The result is a port wine with an average age of 10 years. The wedding is provided by Niepoort Master Blender, José Nogueira.

Food recommendation for the Tawny 10 Years Old Port Niepoort

Enjoy this port wine after dinner with well-matured cheeses or with all kinds of chocolate desserts. But also solo, this port is a real pleasure.
