Niepoort Colheita Tawny Port 2008 Douro


Categories: ,



This Late Bottled Vintage from a single year is aged for four to six years in old oak casks.

LBV fills the gap between the rubies and the vintage ports since a Ruby Port should be drunk quite young and a great Vintage Port may need 15 to 20 years to really open up and show its splendour.

This led to the idea in the 1960s to age the wine 4 to 6 years in large casks before bottling it, thereby producing a wine with the style of a Vintage Port with its deep colour and concentration of fruit but with a more mature character caused by the longer ageing in wood. Late bottled vintage is the perfect port to accompany chocolate desserts, specially if dark/bitter chocolate is used!

Don’t forget to pass to the left!
