Fortnum's Vintage Port, Niepoort
The small port shipping house of Niepoort has been handcrafting outstanding ports since 1842. Dirk Niepoort is currently 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 2001 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 2001 vintage and will need decanting, preferably with a muslin, to filter out any sediment and cork.
Please store at room temperature and horizontally to keep the liquid in contact with the cork.
Please note that it is an offence to purchase or attempt to purchase alcoholic liquor if you are under the age of 18.For a full list of ingredients and allergens, please contact us here.
