Very old wine brandy aged for decades in oak casks at Niepoort wine cellars.
An oldtimer is back: Niepoort Aguardente Vínica Velha.
For some time now, nearly 20 years, this brandy was much appreciated and respected, but no longer marketed. There was still a small portion of the original batch, 25 years old at the time, aged in small oak casks. Recently, the brandy was a little refreshed with a 10-year-old brandy to return to the arena.
Dark topaz-coloured, with shades of yellow. Very fine and vinous, hints of old wood, finely balanced. Very concentrated flavour after long ageing in oak barrels, very intense with a long, spirited finish.
