1999 Niepoort Secundum vintage port

Post by AHB » 19:50 Sun 06 Nov 2011

Deep red colour, opaque. Attractive nose of strawberry jam and fresh mint. Soft, sweet entry with soft tannins on the sides of the tongue and a cleansing herbaceousness comes through with some air. Hot on the aftertaste with a sour / bitter finish that is a bit unattractive. 85/100. Drunk 13 October 2011.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

Thanks for posting, Alex. Since I did not plan my son accordingly and he dropped out a year early (i.e. 99) I am in need of some 99s. Despite my single bottle of Nacional, some Vesuvio and Terra Freita I do own a Mg. of Secundum as well, but never tasted this.
