TAWNY MAGNUM - 1500ml Wood Box

To produce a portwine with a fine and balanced flavour, Niepoort Tawny ages in oak casks for 3,5 years. Freshness, lightness and balance are the key elements of this wine. A Port easy to drink on any occasion. Tawny has a shiny bright colour and soft and sweet tannins.

Tawny Port keeps well for several years, although the wine will not improve with age. It contains no sediment and does not neet to be decanted.

VINIFICATION

Niepoort tawny, 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.

On the palate, very well balanced with a youthful fruity, luscious character, which integrates well with a long spirity finish.
