THE SENIOR TAWNY

The Niepoort Philosophy has been, for the last decades, to innovate, diversify, break taboos, maintaining tradition. So based on this idea we redesigned the concept of the Senior Tawny, using the most traditional format of Port Wine bottle, the Potta bottle.Regarding the wine, Senior Tawny spends most of its time ageing in small barrels in the Niepoort lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia. The small barrels enable a soft and light contact with air through the pores of the wood, which results in a slow oxidation process over the years. Senior Tawny is an elegant port with a subtle expression, a light color and a range of flavors and aromas that are based on red fruit tones. The wine must age and this slow oxidation gives it a kind of respectability the Seniority of Port.

VINIFICATION

The Senior Tawny comes 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.
