Niepoort 10-Year Tawny Port
A benchmark for 10-year-old tawnies. Tawnies with an age indication such as "10 years" are blended from different wines averaging 10 years. The prolonged ageing in small wooden casks confers the characteristic Tawny color. The principle features of an aged tawny are the complexity of aromas, the freshness and a persistent bouquet and refinement. After dinner, 10 years old tawny is a good match with cheeses and especially chocolate based desserts. It can also be drunk as an aperitif, served at room temperature or lightly chilled. In 2003, Wine Spectator gave this 10 years old tawny 95 points.
