"The 2017 Vintage Port is epic and a triumph,
the best I’ve witnessed in allmy years at Niepoort”
2017 was a great year in all aspects, the harvest promised perfection and the weather during the harvest helped achieve this.
Up until this point, 2015 was the best Vintage Port I’d made. 2017 is in the same line of 2015, but with a touch more perfection…it’s possibly our finest Vintage Port since 1945.
This is a Port that is concentrated and intense with beauty and perfection shining through. Perfect tannins with a fruit component that is austere, precise and alive. The spirit is perfectly integrated, and the resulting finish is long,seductive and persistent. All its components are wonderfully balanced, a veritable orchestra in harmony.
A fatal attraction with an insane potential for ageing, yet unbelievably perfect in its youth.
This 2017 Vintage Port is unquestionably a King of Ports.
