Niepoort Colheita Vintage 1980
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.
In 1980, some very attractive, fresh wines were made with a small parcel of wine being put aside for Colheita and aged for several years in small old oak casks (550l), under the watchful eye of 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.
