Niepoort Tawny Port 10 year old
Tawny in colour, with aromas of dried apricots and crystallized tangerine peel well integrated with a nutty character. Try with dry fruits, dry nuts, almonds, raisins, peaches, apricots, etc. Desserts based on eggs, pies with dry fruits, coffee, vanilla... Slightly chilled it can also be used as aperitif!
A charming style, with pretty dried cherry, bergamot and warm fruit cake flavors forming an expressive and inviting core. On the sweeter side of the spectrum, but with the freshness for balance. Drink now.
Soft and light, this is attractively fruity although it lacks great depth of flavor. It is balanced, ripe and sweet, with touches of the wood aging and acidity coming through more strongly at the end.
