VINIFICATION

Niepoort Tawny Dee, with an average age of three and a half years, originates 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 at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia.

TASTING NOTES

Brick red/tawny in colour, with delicate nutty aromas and a hint of dried fruits.
