"Balanced and fresh, with a robust and firm finish"
Elegant, balanced and fresh, with a long intense finish - Niepoort's LBV will pair beautifully with Stilton, mature cheddar or parmesan, dates and bitter chocolate (try with chocolate covered figs!).

Late Bottled Vintage Port is from a single year. The wine ages 4-6 years in old oak casks (opposed to Vintage that ages 2-3). LBV fills the gap between the Rubies and the Vintage Ports since a Ruby Port should be drunk quite young and a great Vintage Port may need 15 to 20 years to really open up and show its splendour. This led to the idea in the 1960s to age the wine 4 to 6 years in large casks before bottling it, thereby producing a wine with the style of a Vintage Port with its deep colour and concentration of fruit, but with a more mature character caused by the longer ageing in wood.
