Professional Reviews For This Wine

For The Love of Port | Rating: 91

A light strawberry color not all that different than the Senior in its hue. That is where the comparison ends. This shows significantly more influence from the small pipes used in the aging. Jose Nogueira was sitting with us while we tasted it. Great texture and a gentle almond flavor were quite enjoyable. The finish was longer and with a better aftertaste than most other Ports in this category.

There's lots of chocolate, hazelnut and dried fruit flavors in this elegant tawny, which is very suave, with a long finish that's filled with cream, sandalwood and luscious white fruit flavors.

Site Blog: The Wine Forum Night 1: Color: Caramel with red hues, definitely a baby. I would think this could easily age i bottle another 10 years and still be delicious. Nose: Red fruits and nutty more tawny notes mingle nicely. Unlike any Tawny I have ever had, and have not had that many I might add so excuse me if this sounds a little amateurish. Palate: Long finish, medium to full bodied. Sweet, but at the same time just as much acidity, a nd flavor concentration of fruit and nuts. Amazing acidity that cleans up the finish superbly. Paired amazingly well with a caramel, graham, pecan, and vanilla pie, topped with slow cooked apples. The acidity in the fruit and the wine were a perfect match as the acidity was reduced in the apples by being caramelized. Night 2: More of the same and I can't get over the beautiful color of this tawny. More of the aged tawny notes are starting to dominate, caramels, candied orange, brown sugar. Night 3: Orange peel and blossom, candied almonds accentuate the above notes. The concentration, yet supple medium body of this port wine speaks of exceptional wine making.

About This Producer

Niepoort's story begins in 1842 when Dutchman Eduard Kebe established the firm in the famed Douro wine-making region of Portugal. When he passed away in 1848, the business was left in the capable hands of his business partner, F. M. Van der Niepoort. Over 150 years later, Dirk Niepoort continues to make fortified wines using the same methods as his ancestors.

Niepoort has lead the way as one of the region's most innovative and creative winemakers of both fortified and still wines.

Wine Varietal: Port Blend

Port is a fortified wine produced in the Douro region of Portugal. To achieve a sweet, high alcohol final product, brandy is added to the fermenting juice, stopping fermentation while sugar is still present in the must. Although more than 80 different grape varieties are authorized in blending, only five make up the majority of Port produced, each adding a unique profile to the finished blend. "Port-style" wines are created the world over using a bevy of traditional and non-traditional varieties.

Touriga Nacional produces small, dark-skinned grapes with high tannins. These grapes give Port grip, body, and structure.

Touriga Francesca is thinner skinned, lighter in tannins than Touriga Nacional, and contributes fruit, aroma, suppleness and roundness.

Tinta Roriz (Portuguese name for Tempranillo) adds high sugar content, low acidity, color and fruit.

Tinta Barroca is known for producing wines of delicacy and finesse, with smooth velvety fruit. It brings sweetness and ripeness to the final blend.

Tinto Cao produces fine and complex wines. Unfortunately, its painfully small yields have reduced plantings to almost insignificant levels.
