The Niepoort philosophy has been, for the last decades, to innovate, diversify, break taboos, maintaining tradition. Parallel to the redesign of The Senior Tawny, where we used the most traditional format of bottle and a moustache to emphasis the seniority, we redesigned the Junior Tinto based on the concept of a young, fresh and contemporary wine.
The Senior Tawny port spends most of its time ageing in small barrels in the Niepoort lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia. The small barrels enable a soft and light contact with air through the pores of the wood, which results in a slow oxidation process over the years.
Brick red tawny appearance; a velvety mouth feel with a fine blend of old wines giving richness balanced with younger wines giving freshness and complexity.
