Niepoort Senior Tawny (boxed)
- Out of stock
The Niepoort Philosophy has been for decades, to innovate, diversify and break taboos, whilst maintaining tradition. The redesign of The Senior Tawny, uses the most traditional format of bottle, the Potta, and a moustache to emphasis the seniority. The Senior Tawny spends most of its time ageing in small barrels in the Niepoort lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia. The small barrels enable a soft and light contact with air through the pores of the wood, which results in a slow oxidation process over the years. The Senior Tawny comes from low yielding vineyards in the Cima Corgo region of the Douro Valley. The grapes are predominantly trodden in lagares, prior to ageing in small old oak casks. Brick red tawny appearance; a velvety mouth feel with a fine blend of old wines giving richness balanced with younger wines giving freshness and complexity.
