1991 Vintage Port Blind Tasting with Roy Hersh. “A true light weight with sheer elegance and sublime (...) It is impressive for such a young Colheita.” ... 91 Points

“I used to think there must be two Dirk Niepoorts. How would he ever have the time and energy to produce great ports and Douro table wines, get involved in myriad joint ventures with friends and winemakers such as Telmo Rodriguez, travel so frequently, and still have the energy and enthusiasm to share his love of world wines - and the food to go with them - with so many people in such an apparently relaxed manner, if he were just one person? 'Another Big Day', held earlier this year at Quinta da Nápoles, the Niepoort winery and tasting haven in the Douro, revealed the secret: he has an outstanding team working with him.”
