Niepoort Colheita 2012 Port Wine

Colheita Ports are Tawny Ports from a single harvest aged in wood for at least seven years before being bottled. Colheita 2004 by Niepoort is wonderful on its own at the end of a meal or on a cold winter afternoon in front of an open fire

Colheitas are dated Tawnies aged in small casks. The minimum age requirement is 7 years, but the tradition at Niepoort is to age several more years before bottling. The wine takes on a Tawny hue. Wood and nutty tones are evident on the palate due to the wine’s slow ageing in old casks. Colheita goes well with dry fruits desserts and the portuguese "Leite Creme queimado". As a starter, the combination with foie gras is impressive

<p><span>The majority of this Crusted Port bottled in 2014 comes from the Niepoort Pisca vineyard and several vineyards in Vale de Mendiz harvested in 2011, along with a couple of small vineyard parcels from Casal de Loivos high up above Pinhão from the 2012 harvest</span></p>

<p>Vintage Port maintains Niepoort's tradition of making balanced Ports with great concentration, being at the same time fine and delicate.</p> <p>The magic of Vintage Port is different in every phase: as a young wine it captures the youthful fruit characters. Then, after 20 years or more, the effects of the slow bottle age integration are revealed and finally, after many decades, the spirit dominates the wine. Vintage Port is amazing in all the three phases</p>

<p><span style="font-family:'Times New Roman', serif;font-size:16px;">Niepoort Garrafeira 1987  is not just a wine; it means by itself quality far above the traditional canons. On the taste reveals a great mixture of sensations, aromas and flavours with a perfect balance between youth and experience, between the novelty of the fruit and the “good old age” that only long years of ageing can achieve</span></p>

<p><span>LBV Ports fill the gap between Ruby and Vintage Ports, as Rubies should be drunk quite young and a Vintage Port may need 15 to 20 years to really open up and show its splendor</span></p>
