2015 Niepoort Vintage Port
"What makes 2015 so unique is the purity of fruit - a result of low humidity during the growing season and harvest, which was not affected by the rains in mid-September.
All the components for 2015 Vintage Port were trodden by foot in circular granite lagares at the Vale de Mendiz Port winery. 100% of the stems were included in the vinification. The wines were racked soon after harvest, aged in tonéis in the Douro over the winter, and then moved to Vila Nova de Gaia, in April 2016. The final blend of the Vintage Port rested again in tonéisat their lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia, prior to bottling.
60% of the grapes come exclusively from several very old plots in Vale de Mendiz. These vineyards have contributed to Niepoort Vintage Ports for many generations and define the character of this wine. The remaining 40% came from Niepoort’s own Pisca vineyard." -Importer
