NV Niepoort 10YO White

Post by AHB » 22:11 Fri 14 Nov 2014

More golden in colour than the 1964 Krohn White alongside. Fresher but more restrained on the nose. Soft on the palate with apricots and white plums that combine to give a nice texture and lovely soft flavours. The finish is delicious with good power and weight and a great length. Much sweeter than the '64. Served as a comparison to the '64 on the recommendation of Beatriz Machado, Wine Director of the Yeatman. 89/100. 26-Sep-14. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
