Niepoort Secundum Vintage 1999
- Out of stock
Niepoort created a second style of vintage port: “Secundum Vintage”. The Secundum’s intention is the creation of an approachable Vintage that offers immediate satisfaction yet keeping the balance to age for decades. If we compare the Niepoorts Vintage Port with classic music then Secundum would be like Mozart, young, charming, creative and tangible and the Vintage like Bach: intense, profound, complex and less accessible. Another classic Niepoort vintage: combining balance with superb concentration, and at the same time very fine and delicate. The wine also has a splendid rustic character giving it a wonderful individuality. Bottled in the autumn of 2002. Dark red in colour, with intense aromas of dark fruits along with a light herbaceous character. On the palate massively concentrated, dense but fresh, with solid tannins, finishing long and persistent. Great to taste now, and will develop wonderfully over the next decades. To fully benefit from its qualities we recommend it be decanted before serving. Serve with soft cheeses or blue cheese.
