NV Niepoort 20YO Tawny, bottled 2005

Post by RonnieRoots » 22:29 Fri 14 Sep 2007

Mostly sweet raisins on the nose. Much more complex on the palate with flavours of raisins, white chocolate, dried citrus peel, and some fresh almonds and mild chili pepper on the finish. Typical Niepoort freshness. Wonderful balance: full flavoured but with a very light mouthfeel. Great port. 93 points.

I tasted this at uncorked's free tasting yesterday lunchtime. I was moved to buy a bottle!
