Fabelhaft (Porto)Fabelhaft (Porto)

Max and Moritz are two naughty boys from Wilhelm Busch stories. The two brothers are the perfect tool to explain the Niepoort world of Port Wine. Max, fresh and fruity and Moritz, smooth and elegant, are The Two Niepoort Fabulous Ports. Moritz spends most of its time ageing in barrels. Through a slow oxidation process over 7 years, is an elegant Port with a subtle expression, light colour and a range of flavours and aromas that are based on red fruit tones. Moritz is one of the Tawnies in the Tawny range of Ports: Tawny, Tawny with Age Indication and Colheita.

Vinification

The wine comes from low yielding old vineyards in the Cima Corgo Region of the Douro Valley. The grapes are predominantly trodden in Lagares, prior to ageing in large wooden vats at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia and bottled with an average age of 3 years.

Tasting Notes

Dark red in colour, with a fresh vibrant aroma of dark fruits which follows through on the palate along with a mineral character, a youthful wine with good extract and great balance, offering superb "drinkability".
