Niepoort Late Bottled Vintage Port 2008
Deep ruby colour, with a complex and concentrated aroma of red and black fruits. Notes of pepper and dark chocolate. On the palate it shows great concentration and volume with a firm structure but a superb soft silky texture. The great acidity provides freshness and balance to the wine. Long and pleasant finish. The wine can be enjoyed now, and will become more complex with further cellaring for a couple of decades. To fully benefit from its qualities we recommend it be decanted before serving. Serve with soft cheeses, mild blue cheese, dark chocolate desserts or even a pepper steak! Food Suggestions: Sweet desserts suggestions: Chocolate desserts, specially dark chocolate. Cheese suggestions: Cheddar, Gouda, Brie. Meal suggestions: Spicy dishes with red meat or "wild animals", lamb and veal meat or peppersteack.
Filled with a bright mix of plum tart, raspberry and cherry flavors, this is well-structured, with plenty of chewy tannins and notes of dark chocolate on the finish. Drink now through 2025. 6,666 cases imported.
