Browse by Winemaker - Dirk Niepoort

The genius behind Niepoort's ports and wines and a comparative youngster. Since taking over from his father the quality of the wines Niepoort release has, if anything, improved. Now a superstar and rightly so - his laid back attitude (brilliantly displayed at a tutored Martinez/Niepoort tasting in Harrogate in 2000) to just about everything is one of his great characteristics. He knows how good his wines are - the fact that Robert Parker (for example) doesn't particularly rate them (he lists them simply as 'good') leaves him unfazed. If only there were more winemakers out there like Dirk!

Niepoort LBV 1/2 Bottle 2009
Portugal :: Douro

Ready to drink

A pretty, deep ruby/violet colour, it has a complex aroma where red fruit notes are predominant, reminiscent of cherries and spices, with a peppery touch. A hint of dark chocolate. On the palate, it is greatly concentrated and full-bodied with firm tannins which at the same time are elegant and smooth. The great acidity provides freshness and balance to the wine. The finish is long and pleasant.
This LBV is ready to be enjoyed and will become more complex by extending ageing for a couple of decades.

Niepoort Secundum 2001
Portugal :: Douro

Drink now, but will keep

Niepoort created a second style of vintage port: Secundum Vintage. The intention of Secundum, is the creation of an approachable Vintage that offers an immediate satisfaction yet keeping the balance to age for decades. Secundum 1999 was the first production of this Vintage, that has the tannin of grand years, well presented and ripe which secures its longevity but at the same time can be appreciated with half its longevity.

Niepoort Vintage 2003
Portugal

Fine, elegant, mineral but not balsamic. The taste continues fine, agressive and with tannins, rich but not excessive and with a long final. Impressive finesse even though robust.
