NV Niepoort 10YO White

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 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
