1992 Niepoort LBV

Post by AHB » 22:17 Sun 25 May 2014

Bottled 1996. Deep red centre with a rose edge; 90% opaque. Attractive on the nose, with soft fruit that is poised on entry. Lovely fruit-led mid-palate with the tannins showing, but dropping back quickly. Nice soft acidity supporting a sweet strawberry jam aftertaste and finish that retains a lingering presence. 85/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT2.

About 50% opaque. This has a quiet nose. Dry, tight, bitterness and rosemary, with a dry and crisp finish. Very nice.
