Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Niepoort Tawny Port

Niepoort Tawny Port NV

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalFrom three schistous soiled vineyards in the Douro and vines upwards of 30 years, this is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Amarela, Sousão, Tinta Roriz, fermented in lagares with foot treading, and aged in small oak casks for 3.5 years. Mouthfilling and welcoming, with dried raisins, dark butterscotch, caramel kisses and hints of dark cocoa. The sweetness is held in check, thankfully, by a striving acidity. Beauty for drinking now.Tasted: 14 January 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 17.95 consignment Producer: Niepoort (Vinhos) S.A.Distributors: Vintage Corks Limited
