Niepoort Tawny Dee Port

It looked more like a lighter ruby as there was still a lot of red in the colour, but it was quite transparent and looked more like an older vintage.  The nose too had a lot of sweeter, juicier red berries, but there was a definite Tawny element.  Some raisin elements, a lot of brown sugar and prunes came through.  The palate was quite sweet, with a combination of brambles and prunes, blueberries and leather and then with a dried fruit soaked in rum flavour on the finish.  It was very well balanced, with a lovely, long lasting finish.  87pts (May 2011)
