Winemaker's Notes:

The Niepoort 2007 has benefited from a second winter to further close up its dense purple colour. On the aroma dark fruits are wonderfully contrasted with slighty green nuances and great finesse. On the palate, medium sweet, which combines well, with a very tight structure. The taste exhibits a firm tannins and length but with great finesse in evidence.
My Notes:

About Niepoort:

Niepoort is an independent family business since 1842. Through five generation the business has passed successfully from one Niepoort to the next Niepoort and in most cases older and younger generation worked side by side for a long period.
