Niepoort, Tawny Dee, (Half-Bottle) [D6]
Niepoort Tawny Dee, with an average age of three and a half years, originates from low yielding vineyards in Cima Corgo region of Douro Valley. The grapes are predominantly trodden in lagares, prior to ageing in small old oak casks at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia. Brick red/tawny in colour, with delicate nutty aromas and a hint of dried fruits. On the palate, very well balanced with a youthful fruity, luscious character, which integrates well with a long spirity finish.
As is typical of port, the Tawny Dee is made up of a field blend including Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Amarela, Sousão, Tinta Roriz.
