1964 Niepoort Garrafeira

Post by Sam VV » 18:25 Wed 08 Oct 2014

Very clean. Lots of dried fruit on the nose (raisins, saltanas, dried cranberries, dried cherries). Warming baking spices (nutmeg, cinnamon) and coffee. Sappy, resinous. Slightly floral. Very long and complex. A very exciting wine indeed.

Bottled 24/06/2014.

Thanks for the note. I just acquired one of these (I'm a 1964 baby) and plan to save it for a future momentous birthday or event. Perhaps my 60th... or perhaps my retirement party. At any rate, it's good to hear that it's showing so well. Your note sounds good to me.
