1912 Niepoort Colheita Port - 1 Bottle (0.75L)

1912 - Niepoort Porto Colheita 0.75L

Bottling Year: probably 1977

Despite of its age, this Colheita shows some depth in colour, with amber and green hints. The aroma takes us into an endless journey, with deep smoke aromas accompanied by dried fruit and roasted coffee notes. On the palate, shows notes of plum and dried fig with traces of vanilla, very delicate and elegant. The aftertaste is endless and exceptional. An unforgettable experience.

Colheita Ports are Tawny Ports from a single vintage, aged in the traditional Port Wine pipes of 550l, for at least seven years before being bottled. The Colheita Port is wonderful on its own at the end of a meal or on a cold winter afternoon in front of an open fireplace.

In this memorable year of the beginning of the 20th century, it snowed in the Douro region in February and March and the vines were one month delayed, in its cycle, when spring arrived. The weather warmed up in mid-April, but the temperatures only increased in late July, beginning of August, when temperatures reached 42 °C. In the 2nd half of August the weather cooled down and the rain fell for 10 days. During harvest it also rained on the 2nd half of September. The irregular weather of this year, with some high quality wines, was the key to a very careful selection of the wines and an aging process in barrels of 550 to 600l that took place over a long period in order to increase the concentration and overall qualities of this Colheita.
