94-96. The Wine Advocate
The glass containing the Niepoort Vintage is almost overflowing with fruity aromas – damson, cassis, tobacco and cigar box all beautifully defined. With aeration there is a very appealing sense of Bordeaux-like austerity that comes forth. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, a slight savoriness infusing the tertiary black fruit, and superb structure on the reserved, quite aristocratic finish, which offers a kick of spice on the aftertaste. Wonderful. Tasted May 2013
97 points James Suckling Great nose here of crushed raspberries and minerals with hints of dark chocolate. Full body, medium sweet with a chewy, peppery and lightly stemmy character. It's long and tannic but very polished. One of the best ever young vintage Ports from here.
The Vintage Port is stored in a cellar under the best conditions.
The bottles are carefully packed and sent insured.
