O Produtor, tasting note published in July 25th 2016
Dark topaz-coloured, with shades of yellow. Very fine and vinous, hints of old wood, finely balanced. Very concentrated flavour after long ageing in oak barrels, very intense with a long, spirited finish.
An oldtimer is back: Niepoort Aguardente Vínica Velha. For some time now, nearly 20 years, this brandy was much appreciated and respected, but no longer marketed. Recently, the brandy was a little refreshed with a 10-year-old brandy to return to the arena. Vinification: There was still a small portion of the original batch, 25 years old at the time, aged in small oak casks. Recently, the brandy was a little refreshed with a 10-year-old brandy.
The Niepoort family has been creating Port Wines since 1842. The first property in Douro was bought in 1987 and Dirk Niepoort started a new Era in the company with the creation of the first Redoma red in 1991. In the last years Niepoort took on the great challenge of interpreting other soils and climates and acquired two properties in other regions, Dão and Bairrada. Discover the Niepoort Triangle which express the different terroirs: Schist (Douro), Limestone (Bairrada) and Granite (Dão).
