20 YEARS OLD TAWNY
The tawnies are aged in small old oak casks (550 l) in the cellars at Vila Nova de Gaia, over many years. The balanced marriage of the different characteristics and diverse ages is the art of the Niepoort master blender José Nogueira.
Brick red/brown appearance interspersed with Orange hues with good depth of colour. Fabulous aromas of crystalized fruit and dried apricots which come through on the palate along with a smooth well integrated nutty alcoholic character on the finish.
