Description

A wonderful dark purple rim and great depth of colour marks the appearance. The aroma is dominated by a superb youthful dark fruit. It is powerful on the front palate, leading into a fresh middle palate with very seductive flavours of dark fruits. A great combination of power and elegance, ends in a bold, dry and lengthy, slightly green tannic finish. The length and structure of the 2017 promise a wine for the long term with great ageing potential.

"This 2017 Vintage Port is unquestionably a King of Ports." Dirk Niepoort, March 2019.

THE WINE ADVOCATE Rating (99 - 100) - Drink Date: 2035 - 2085 - "The 2017 Vintage Port is a field blend from old vines (80 to 100 years old). It comes in with 89 grams per liter of residual sugar. This was set for bottling in two weeks, but it was the final blend. Even when open for a couple of days, this was still tight, muscular and concentrated, grabbing the palate and never letting go. On opening, it was fragrant and delicious, but even then, there was plenty of muscle and evident concentration. The concentration and power merely improved as it aired out—unlike a lot of 2016s (which year Niepoort did not declare)."
