This Crusted Port from Niepoort is a bottling based on some of the highest quality ports from a range of vintage harvests. Only small lots are blended from 100% foot trodden and granite-fermented fruit, often ports that were originally destined for Vintage Port, but didn't quite make the grade. No fining or filtration prior to bottling and only released three years after bottling.

Ready to drink now despite having hardly thrown any crust (deposit) at all, but could equally be kept for many years. Brilliant dark red in appearance, the crusted has a beautiful lifted elegance to it with good depth on the rim. Exhibits aromas of cherries and dark plums along with fine minty, liquorice. On the palate, well integrated tannins dominate along with superbly evolved fruit and good length.

Keep bottle stored lying down and always decant before serving. Try with dark chocolate desserts, cheddar, gouda or brie cheeses, spicy dishes with red meat, game, lamb, veal, and pepper steak.

Founded in 1842, Niepoort Wines is now run by 5th generation Dirk Niepoort. Small in nature, it has built a formidable international reputation for its port and still wines, with demand threatening to outstrip supply.
