£17.50 - A pretty, deep ruby/violet colour, it has a complex aroma where red fruit notes are predominant, reminiscent of cherries and spices, with a peppery touch. A hint of dark chocolate.

Vinification
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
-
The grapes used to produce LBV 2009 come from low production vineyards in the Cima Corgo region of the Douro Valley. They are foot trodden in granite lagares and then the wine is aged in large wooden vats, in the cellars at Vila Nova de Gaia. It is Niepoort's tradition to begin bottling LBV four years after harvesting to maintain the freshness and fruitiness which are characteristic of these wines
