1978 Niepoort Vintage Port

Post by Axel P » 14:30 Mon 30 Nov 2009

Tasted within the Niepoort Range on Nov 27th with Dirk Niepoort:

The 78 presented himself much more accessible than his brother from 77:

Bouquet with a good intensity, fruity and caramel notes. Some chocolate in the palate. An extemly pleasant Port for now and the next 10years.

Nose: matured
taste: too old, is past its best time, fells apart over the time in the glass

You could taste that this was a very good port.
Blue Stilton and Port - what else!
