2009 Niepoort Bioma vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:15 Sat 11 May 2013

This was tasted twice at the BFT on 24 April 2013.

A separate bottle from the previous tasting note. Red, 90% opaque. Closed nose. Restrained entry, gentle fruit and round but firm tannins. Air brings out even more tannin. Overall this is round and gentle with a lovely balance. 88/100.
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
