1980 Niepoort

Post by djewesbury » 15:37 Tue 12 Nov 2013

The night after the Niepoort tasting with Nick Delaforce, friends old and new met with Nick to drink some bottles that they brought. The venue was the Morning Star pub, Pottinger's Entry, Belfast, who found us about 80 glasses and served us with fine steaks.

This was a dark, browny pink. In the mouth it was short, but with a lovely minty entry.

On the second night (there were leftovers that had to be cleared up), this was extremely minty and chocolatey. Some would say this was not a good thing; I would disagree.

Ni80. Red, 50% opaque. Nose slightly stinky. taste past prime, acidity showing too strongly, thought with nice fruit behind.
