96 pts Jamie Goode - It has benefited from a second winter to further close up its dense purple colour. On the aroma dark fruits are wonderfully contrasted with slightly green nuances and great finesse. On the palate, medium sweet, which combines well, with a very tight structure. The taste exhibits a firm tannins and length but with great finesse in evidence.

Winemaking:
This vintage continues Niepoort’s tradition to create balanced ports with great concentration while simultaneously fine and delicate. Once again, at Niepoort, we believe that we managed to produce a Vintage Port to last for decades... Vinification: After several dry winters, the 2006/2007 winter was most useful in replenishing dwindling water reserves. In 2007 the harvest initiated at Niepoort’s historic winery in Vale de Mendiz on Friday 14th of September. Apart from a brief thunderstorm on the 16th of September and the odd light shower at the end of the month, the harvest was carried out under excellent conditions. Fermenting musts exhibited dark colours with spectacular purple hues and very good acid balance.

96 points - Niepoort Vintage Port 2007

Tasted from half bottle. Deeply coloured. Warm nose is currently a little muted, but the palate is explosive with beautifully expressive violet, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit backed up by firm tannins and vivid acidity. A concentrated wine with amazing structure and acidity, and a potentially huge life ahead of it. A serious effort, but don't think about drinking it young. My rating may be a bit conservative because of this.

17,5 points - Niepoort Vintage Port 2007

A fresh and spicy nose giving a very especiado tone, beautiful cherry fruit, light floral, very balanced sweetness, round tannins and enough integrated into the set, fine and harmonious, a Vintage ready to grow for many years.

96 points - Niepoort Vintage Port 2007

An impressive, balanced wine from master winemaker Dirk van Niepoort. Chocolate and licorice flavors dominate the fruit, giving a wine that has weight, complexity and at the same time elegance. The tannins offer a dense, dry structure. It is tight, solid and certainly for aging.

95 points - Niepoort Vintage Port 2007

Very enticing aromas of violet, blueberry and sandalwood follow through to a full body, with medium sweetness, ultrarefined tannins and a very long finish. This just coats the mouth with fabulous fruit and supersilky tannins. Chewy, yet friendly and harmonious. So fine. Best after 2017. 2,200 cases made.
