NV Niepoort Crusted 2011

Post by AHB » 22:07 Sun 25 May 2014

Bottled 2011. Deep red and opaque, looking rather young. Showing little on the nose but on the palate there is perfumed fruit, lavender and clover honey. Luscious fruit but also stunning tannins. This is a really nice port that manages to combine powerful tannins with rich, soft fruit into an elegant package. 92/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
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
