More information

Senior Port of Niepoort is vinified from Sousão, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Cão, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Francesa, Touriga Nacional  and other red Portuguese grape varieties. 

In the glass shines a wonderful brick red with orange highlights. The expressive bouquet is dominated by red and dried fruits. Especially wild berries and a fine cherry aroma come to the fore. Slow maturation in the wooden barrel creates a noble and refined port that inspires a varied play of flavours. The older wines give this port its wonderful structure, the marriage with the younger wines freshness and complexity. The final comes with an outstanding length. 

Vinification of Niepoort Senior Port The grapes are carefully picked

by hand in the individual vineyards of Vale do Pinhão and Ferrão from vines over 30 years old. The harvested material is then tamped with the feet in Lagares using a traditional method and fermented in these. For seven years this port wine is stored in traditional pipas, these are wooden barrels with a capacity of 550 liters, which allow a lively air exchange. In this way, a well-dosed oxidation can develop, which gives this port its special aromas.

Food recommendation for the Port Senior Niepoort

A wonderful accompaniment to strong spicy cheeses - such as Stilton or Roquefort - or dried fruits, cream caramel, apple pie and goose liver terrine. However, this port wine is also a drinking pleasure as an aperitif
