You will like to know that...

The Niepoort The Senior Tawny is a classic port from Port. The grapes originate from the terroirs, Vale do Pinhao and Ferrao, on which over 30-year-old vines are growing. Although the philosophy of Niepoort stands for innovation and modernity, the company manages the balancing act towards tradition with this delicious port. The grapes are harvested manually and later on pounded with the feet before the must goes into the fermentation procedure. The aging takes place in small barrels in the old cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. Those barrels allow a light contact with the air through the slightly moldy wood, through which it comes to a slow oxidation. This way, the Senior Tawny achieves its gentleman-like character and its senior majesty.
