2017 Niepoort

Concentrated and intense, wonderfully balanced, seductive, persistent, 2017 Niepoort is astonishing. This is a supreme example of a wine in which powerful tannins and substantial alcohol are made to seem entirely effortless by freshness and lift. The very floral aromatics are entirely typical of the house style. Dirk is convinced his 2017 is the best port he has ever made, the best Niepoort, possibly, since his grandfather’s generation and the 1945. Dirk reckons it will probably shut down somewhere around 2022, slumber for around a decade, then burst back to life for the next seventy years or so. (NT 16/04/19)
