Dessert, Fortified & Fruit Wine by Niepoort from Portugal. In a great year like 2015, the big challenge was selecting the final blend from more than 60,000 litres of very good quality wines, all of them worthy of great Vintage Port status. For more than a year, Dirk Niepoort, Nicholas Delaforce and Rodrigo Nogueira examined the wines carefully and meticulously selected the best vats. In April 2017, near perfection was achieved when a blend of 20,000 litres was finalized. This is a great vintage, showing beautiful concentration, vigor and complexity, but with plenty of finesse and remarkable freshness. Compared to the 2011 vintage, despite the tannins also being very robust, the 2015 is a silky wine, with great structure and incredible balance thanks to its taut acidity and lower level of sweetness, which results in a fresher wine. Perfect with Queijo da Serra, a Stilton or other blue cheeses. Also great with egg based desserts such as Pao de Lo (Portuguese sponge based cake).
