Niepoort Bioma Old Vines Vintage Port 2016
97 pts Robert Parker - A concentrated, almost dark purple colour, with aromas of black pepper, spice and dark fruits such as plums and blackberries. Initially the palate is fresh with superb acidity and a wonderful expression of dark fruits, but follows through to a bold tannic mid-palate and finish, the sweetness and fruit very much dominated by tannin on the finish. This is a Port wine suitable for long cellaring.

Winemaking:
The whole grape bunches were foot-trodden at our Port winemaking facility in Vale de Mendiz. After being fortified with brandy, the Port was left to settle over the winter. In the spring, the wine was transferred to a very cool part of the winery at Quinta de Nápoles and racked into pipas (the traditional 550L casks). By maturing this Port in pipas in a cool cellar in the Douro instead of in large vats in Gaia and bottling the Bioma “Vinha Velha” in the third year after the harvest, we are able to produce an exceptionally complex wine. Interestingly, this is the way it used to be made in the “good old days” when wines were shipped to England in pipas, and bottled later.
