Niepoort 's White 10 Years Old Port is vinified from Arinto, Códega, Gouveio, Rabigato, Viosinho and other white Portuguese grape varieties.
In the glass, this port shines in a radiant gold with sparkling highlights. The expressive bouquet reveals notes of dry fruit - especially the dried fig comes to the fore - as well as orange peels. This is accompanied by aromas of roasted walnuts and caramelised almonds. Floral nuances complete the complex spectrum of aromas. The palate is flattered by the fine and balanced personality. The lively acidity harmonizes perfectly with the balanced sweetness.
