2016 Niepoort LBV

£26.00

LBV stands for Late Bottled Vintage, which is a style of Port wine that is aged longer in barrels before being bottled. Niepoort's LBV is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, reflecting the estate's commitment to quality and tradition.

This is a category of Port wine that gained popularity in the 1960s and fills the gap between Rubies and Vintage Ports. The aging period of LBV allows it to be presented as mature and rounded, and it can be enjoyed when young, right after bottling.

The 2016 Niepoort LBV is made from a blend of traditional Douro grape varieties, including Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, and others. The grapes are sourced from select vineyards in the Douro Valley and undergo a careful vinification process before being aged in oak barrels for an extended period.

Tasting Note: Dark ruby colour with a red rim, the aroma is dominated by dark chocolate combined with wild berries and a hint of spice. On the palate, this is a medium-bodied wine with a firm structure and a refreshing acidity, leading to a lingering, spicy finish. It is perfect for drinking now, showcasing its freshness and primary fruit, but it can also benefit from cellaring.

Origin: Douro Valley, Portugal

Blend: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Amarela, Sousão, Tinta Roriz

Niepoort

Experience the independent family business, passed successfully for five generations from one Niepoort to the next, with older and younger generations working side by side for a long period. We eagerly anticipate the sixth generation, ready for a future of close collaboration.

Dirk Niepoort, part of the fifth generation, leads the family business, following the retirement of his father, Eduard Rudolph Niepoort. Since his studies in Switzerland, Dirk has been passionate about wine and has brought innovation to the traditional Niepoort brand.

Niepoort strives to maintain its status as a "niche player" by crafting unique ports and Douro wines that blend centuries-old customs with modernity. This combination also encompasses wine from two other regions, the Bairrada and Dão, which have contributed to shaping the Douro - Bairrada - Dão triangle. The newest points in this triangle also "deliver the goods" and hold a significant place for Niepoort, as they possess immense potential by combining the rich heritage of Portugal's winemaking history with the potential for innovation.
