Niepoort Crusted Port
75cl / 19.5%
Crusted port is made by selecting wines of vintage quality from two or three harvests, combining them and then ageing this blend in bottles for three years. It's a fantastic port to drink straight away, full of dark red fruit, dark chocolate and mint notes, but remember to decant it before serving – as the name suggests there is natural sediment in the bottle.
Niepoort Crusted Port Reviews
Tasting notes from the producerWith a brilliant dark red appearance and good depth on the rim, the wine also shows classic aromas of dark plums, cherries and mint. On the palate, grainy tannins dominate along with dark chocolate notes. It is a great blend of years, with the 2011 component dominating, but offering a more seductive and exuberant character compared to the finer 2011 Niepoort Vintage. Certainly a superb wine to drink now or to age for several decades.
