Niepoort Colheita 2005
- Out of stock
Colheita Ports are Tawny Ports from a single harvest aged in wood for at least seven years before being bottled. The Colheita Port is wonderful on its own at the end of a meal or on a cold winter afternoon in front of an open fire. The grapes for the 2005 Colheita were trodden in lagares and later the port was matured in small old oak casks at Niepoort's lodge in Gaia until 2014. The extended ageing in small old oak casks imparts a wonderful brick red / brown appearance in the wine. Delightful vinous aroma, well integrated with dried fruits aromas. A unique flavour reminiscent of dried prunes and apricots on the palate, leading to an elegant spirity finish.
