The small port shipping house of Niepoort has been handcrafting outstanding ports since 1842. Dirk Niepoort is currently the fifth generation of the family to personally oversee every wine which leaves the famous Lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia. Their extraordinary reputation is founded on a commitment to ancient vineyards, still treading most of their grapes in old granite ‘lagares’ and bottling without filtration.
As such, they remain regarded by many as the guardians of authentic port production. This Vintage port comes from the 2003 harvest. Vineyard and vintage have combined to offer a port which has complex notes of damsons and sweet spice.
Please note this Port is from the 2003 vintage and will need decanting, preferably with a muslin, to filter out any sediment and cork before serving.
Please note we are in the process of refreshing some of the labels across our wine and spirits collection, so your bottle might look different to the one pictured.
