1970 Niepoort vintage port

Post by AHB » 16:56 Sat 11 May 2013

Dumpy bottle. The wines for this port were mostly sourced from the Pisca vineyard, which is now mostly dedicated to the Bioma port from Niepoort.

Red in colour, 30% opaque. Ripe and sweet on the nose, sweet and balanced on entry. The palate shows fabulous fruit which is mature and balanced. The aftertaste and finish is driven by the sweet fruit and has an amazing length. Fabulous port. 96/100. Tasted at the BFT on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
