30 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.
Deep brown colour with a brown rim and a touch of green - very characteristic in old tawny ports.
On the nose a wine from another era, but very much alive with a fabulous concentration of coffee and liqueur which comes through on the palate with great spirity finish.
