Porto Late Bottled Vintage Niepoort 2019

Tax included

Niepoort's Late Bottled Vintage is perhaps the most important Premium Port in the range. The "Winemaker" Dirk van der Niepoort calls it the "Little Brother" of the Vintage Port, since the origins of the grape and the methods of vinification are identical.

The grapes of Porto Niepoort LBV 2019 come from selected lots of Cima Corgo vineyards, in the Douro region. The grapes were pressed in the traditional way with subsequent maturation of the Port in large and old oak vats in the loggias in Vila Nova de Gaia. In Niepoort the tradition is to bottle the LBV four years after the harvest, in order to reveal the fruity essence and the
freshness of the Port at the time of tasting. In order to enhance its qualities, we recommend decanting it before serving. Ideal with sweet and blue cheeses, dark chocolate desserts or a peppered steak



Niepoort has been an independent family business for over a century and a half; five generations have succeeded Niepoort since Franciscus Marius Niepoort founded the company in 1842. Almost always, two generations have worked side by side for many years, contributing to a successful transition. In this moment, you look enthusiastically at the sixth generation in the future.

Niepoort's mission is to maintain his position of "niche player", giving continuity to the production of Porto wines and Douro wines, combining centuries-old tradition with innovation.

Dirk is the current leader of the family-a role handed down to him from his father, with the challenge to "innovate while preserving good traditions." Dirk's sons Daniel, Marco and Ana are following in their father's footsteps to ensure that the next chapters of the Niepoort story continue to be as fruitful as each vintage.

All the wines that bear the Niepoort seal reflect the bold and deeply rooted spirit of the family. Each glass encapsulates the essence of terroir, a wonder that attracts inquisitive minds and testifies to a deep respect for nature, for the "elders" who, as Dirk acknowledges over and over again, have taught him everything he knows, and for the men and women who practice this challenging profession on a daily basis. Each step in the process is carefully thought out and based on respect for decades of accumulated wisdom along the way. Dirk sums it up well: "The way we make wine is very simple: it requires perfectionism and attention to detail. And that applies to everything in my life."
