2011 Niepoort crusted port

Post by AHB » 22:53 Tue 17 Jul 2012

Bottled 2011; blended principally from 2007 and 2008 vintages. Deep red, solid rim and opaque centre. Lovely fruity nose, lots of cherries. Fruit dominated palate. Soft tannins supprt, with a lovely silkiness. Delicious soft and fruity finish. Really nice. 90/100. 14-Jun-12. Pop 'n' pour.
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
