Niepoort LBV 2017
LBV or Late Bottled Vintage is a category of Port wines which became popular in the 60s, filling the gap between Ruby and Vintage Ports. The extended aging period of the LBV allows it to show a rounder and mature character –this wine can therefore be enjoyed young, soon after bottling.
Dark ruby in color, dark chocolate aromas to the foreground, along with fruits of the forest and a spicy character. Medium weight on the palate with firm structure and acidity providing freshness and ending in a spicy, warming finish.
