Niepoort's Tawny 20 Years Old Port is vinified from Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Amarela, Sousão and Tinta Roriz.
A wonderful reddish-brown colour with orange highlights shines in the glass at this port. The complex bouquet knows how to enchant the nose: aromas of candied fruits and dried apricots meet walnuts and hazelnuts with notes of dried plums. The dried apricots are also very present on the palate and blend excellently with the dense body to form a round overall impression. The final convinces with its wonderful length and nutty nuances.
Vinification of Niepoort Tawny 20 Years Old Port
The harvested grapes come from the vineyards of Vinha da Pisca, Vale do Pinhão and Ferrão, more than 60 years old.
According to the traditional method, the readings are tamped with the foot in Lagares and fermented in it. This port matures for many years in small wooden barrels with a capacity of 550 liters (pipas). The barrels are stored in the cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia. This tawny contains up to 50 different wines, which are between 10 and 50 years old. The result is a port wine with an average age of 20 years. The wedding is provided by Niepoort Master Blender, José Nogueira.
