Niepoort Late Bottled Vintage Port 2013
Typical Niepoort showing intense black fruits on the nose with vibrant raspberry, juicy plums, succulent cherries, nutmeg and spice on the palate. Good structure and balance from one of the smaller Port houses. No need to decant.

LBV’s (late bottled vintages) from top producers just seem to get better and better. This is a serious port and at a bargain price. I love the pretty, aromatic floral side, which sits over more traditional flavours like chocolate and fresh plum. Best decanted, and it will age gracefully over the next decade.
