2011 Niepoort LBV

Post by AHB » 21:38 Sun 14 Jun 2015

Bottled 2015. Deep red, bordering on scarlet at the rim. Opaque centre. Fresh blackcurrant nose of an exuberant and youthful port. A big mouthful of fruit, slightly perfumed by hints of aniseed and big, powerful tannins. A lovely fruity aftertaste and finish that is concentrated and persistent. A great LBV capable of aging and improving for 30 years. 89/100. 06-May-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
