Niepoort has been an independent family business since 1842. Through five generations, the business passed successfully from one Niepoort to the next Niepoort and in most cases older and younger generation worked side by side for a long period. They are now enthusiastically looking forward to the future sixth generation, anticipating close collaboration.
Niepoort Tawny Dee
Niepoort Tawny Dee, with an average age of three and a half years, originates from low yielding
vineyards in the Cima corgo region of the 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.
