Robert Parker 94-96 Points | The 2015 Vintage Port is a field blend from old vines (80 to 100 years old). It comes in with 104 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is another gorgeous Vintage Port from Niepoort this issue, elegant, but very powerful and focused. I may have a minor preference for the Bioma this issue, but reasonable minds might differ and this is very fine. The tightly wound precision and serious backbone make this a 2015 with plenty of room to grow in the cellar, but that's not all. It has fine intensity of flavor and freshness to go with the big tannins here, making this a very serious Port on all fronts. It is impressive overall.

In the national wine panorama, there is no producer more consensual than Niepoort and a long history begins in 1842 as the first Van Der Niepoort to enter Portugal.

Once he started in the Port Wine Market as a merchant, he quickly set up his business that would become prosperous and prosperous.

In April 2017, near perfection was achieved when a blend of 20,000 litres was finalized. This is a great vintage, showing beautiful concentration, vigor and complexity, but with plenty of finesse and remarkable freshness. Compared to the 2011 vintage, despite the tannins also being very robust, the 2015 is a silky wine, with great structure and incredible balance thanks to its taut acidity and lower level of sweetness, which results in a fresher wine.

Perfect with "Queijo da Serra," a Stilton or other blue cheeses. Also great with egg based desserts such as "Pao de Lo" (Portuguese sponge based cake). Winemaker Description.
