Description

This LBV from Niepoort is made to the same exacting standards as their vintage port, with no fining or filtration. Ancient vines are hand picked and 100% trodden and fermented in their circular granite lagares at Vale de Mendiz. The wine spends a further 4 years in barrel. 

The resulting LBV retains all the primary fruit of a great ruby - plums, blackberries, dark cherry - but with further integration, development, and complexity. The inclusion of ripe stems provides herbs, spice and a herbaceous lift to wonderful, soft tannic structure and natural acidity. Intense yet soft and full of juicy flavour. Suitable for further bottle ageing of another 10 years. Try with dark chocolate desserts, cheddar, gouda or brie cheeses, or red meats.

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.
