Niepoort Colheita Vintage 1987
Out of stock
Colheita Ports are Tawny Ports from a single vintage, aged in wood for at least seven years before being bottled. The Colheita Port is wonderful on its own at the end of a meal or on a cold winter afternoon in front of an open fireplace.
Following a hot dry summer, grapes were in good condition at the time of harvest, if somewhat on the ripe side. Some dense colored wines were made, ideal for a long period of ageing in small old oak casks (550l), under the watchful eye of Niepoort Master Blender José Nogueira in the cellars at Vila Nova de Gaia.
Brown appearance with hints of orange. Apart from some nutty characters and spirit, the aroma is relatively subdued, but it most certainly comes to life on the palate with a voluptuous silky front palate, following through to a very bold structure and mellow spirity finish.
