Aged in oak casks for a minimum of seven years before being bottled, the Harvest Ports are produced through a single harvest. The Niepoort Harvest 2001 is a dense, intense and fresh wine, with a great aromatic concentration and notes of dried fruits, like plums and apricots, as well as slight hints of smoke. An Harvest Port is always an excellent choice and the opportunity to acquire one now becomes easier with this 37,5 cl bottle.
In the mouth, Niepoort Harvest 2001 is a long and complex wine, with flavours of fruit and spices, slight acidity that provides a long and elegant finish. The year of 2001 allowed a slow maturation of the grapes, as it had a hot summer, which gave origin to fresh and elegant wines. The wine aging occurred during 9 years in barrels with more than 50 years old. It’s an Harvest that can be served as an appetizer or at the end of a meal.
