Niepoort Colheita 2008 Tawny Port is special. Colheita Ports are Tawnies which come from a single vintage and are aged in 550L old barrels for a minimum period of 7 years prior to bottling.

2008 was an excellent year for the Douro Valley. Rich spring rains allowed the soil to retain water, then a moderate summer led to a late harvest. Low yield, meant quality fruit with a great freshness and acidity. Perfectly balanced sweetness.

The deep brick red colour of the Port wine reminds you of a Manchester street. Lightly smoked orange and dried fruit aromas give way to a refreshing palate. This is down to the wonderful acidity, bolstered by aromas of dried apricots and crystallised fruit.

Pair with: Crema Catalana

  • The Niepoort family are one of the most outstanding producers of Port in Portugal.

    While they are one of the true bastions of this style of fortified wine, in their own words they want to remain a ‘niche player’. This means that they look to produce distinctive and innovative Port wines. Ports that remain true to the classic style of Port, but look to create something genuinely unique for the consumer as well.

  • The Niepoort family have vineyards in the Douro Valley in Portugal. Port can only be produced in the Douro Valley region of Portugal. The region is breath-taking. Verdant green and rocky hills on schist soils, on both banks of the Douro River.

  • The Niepoort family have run their independent family-run business since 1842. Over these five generations, they’ve both honed their skills and become one of the most outstanding producers of Port in Portugal.
