1 bottle of Niepoort Garrafeira 1952 Port wine
Bottled 1955, Decanted 1987
A unique masterpiece from Niepoort.
Currently, Niepoort is the only Port house which produces Garrafeira-style Ports.
Light brown colour. Incredible array of aromas on the nose : strawberry jam, walnuts, nougat, orange peels, kumquat along with an astonishing minerality reminds of a Manzanilla (Jerez). A slight touch of volatile acidity positively strengthen these sensations. Despite a strong and powerful expression, this wine is just about delicacy and lace. Voluptuous and round. Finesse and density. Infinite length. This wine which has benefited from a fine ageing however shows an outstanding youth.
The second generation of the Niepoort family, in the late 19th century, had the fortunate idea of buying from a german glass factory in Oldenburg about 4000 glass balloons (in the form of old apothecary bottles) of dark-green glass with varying capacities from 8 to 11 litres. Eduard Marius van der Niepoort, Dirk’s grandfather, gave purpose to the demijohns by bottling the best wines of the 1931 harvest, thus creating the type “Garrafeira Niepoort”. Garrafeira is not just a wine; it means by itself quality far above the traditional canons. On the taste reveals a great mixture of sensations, aromas and flavours with a perfect balance between youth and experience, between the novelty of the fruit and the “good old age” that only long years of ageing can achieve.
The lot will be sent in appropriate custom packaging.
