NIEPOORT QUINTA DO PASSADOURO 2000 VINTAGE PORT
The Pinhao valley property on Quinta do Passadouro makes quite different ports to those under the Niepoort label, due to the very particular terroir found here. The stamp of Dirk Niepoort is unmistakable, though, and since the first vintage Port in 1992, Passadouro enjoys a loyal following all of its own.Portugal.
Restricted yields and maximised foot treading make for impressive concentration and intensity in this Niepoort 2000 Quinta do Passadouro.
The Niepoorts have a long history of port production, with Dirk Niepoort, currently at the helm, the fifth generation. Accustomed to buying grapes, they have recently invested in their own quintas. Passadouro, bought in 1990, house 48 indigenous varieties, organically farmed. Pure and peppery, rich and stylish - a fine ambassador.
