Niepoort's Crusted bottling is based on some of the highest quality ports from a range of vintage harvests. Only small lotes are blended from 100% foot trodden and granite-fermented fruit, often ports that were originally destined for Vintage Port, but didn't quite make the grade.

 

Ready to drink now despite having hardly thrown any crust at all (it's unfined and unfiltered), but could equally be kept for many years.
