The 2011 Vintage Port Campaign is in full swing and every commentator is rating this as a really top vintage. A combination of excellent vintage conditions, with more precise winemaking and more meticulous selection than (possibly) ever before.
James Suckling on Niepoort 2011
“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. Its long and tannic but very polished. One of the best ever young vintage ports from here. 1500 cases produced of this foot trodden wine.”
97/100 (places it in Suckling’s Top Four of the Vintage)
Jancis Robinson on Niepoort 2011
“Very intense blackish purple. Fantastic breadth and richness. Putty, opulent and so rich! Much sweeter and juicier than the Bioma. Very lifted and dry on the end but only after the most amazing fresh fruit. Racy and sinewy. Racehorse. Fab. Palate scrub on the end.”
