The Niepoort Philosophy has been, for the last decades, to innovate, diversify, break taboos and maintain tradition. So based on this idea they redesigned the concept of the Senior Tawny, using the most traditional format of Port Wine bottle, the Potta bottle. Regarding the wine, Senior Tawny spends most of its time ageing in small barrels in the Niepoort lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia. The small barrels enable a soft and light contact with air through the pores of the wood, which results in a slow oxidation process over the years. Senior Tawny is an elegant port with a subtle expression, a light color and a range of flavors and aromas that are based on red fruit tones. The wine must age and this slow oxidation gives it a kind of respectability the Seniority of Port.

We are also no longer able to guarantee “Express" next day delivery. We hope to have this back up and running as soon as possible but in the meantime, our deliveries will take a little longer than usual (roughly 2-3 days).
