Tawny Dee is one of the twins of Niepoort's range, the other being Ruby Dum. Both these wines come from the same lot, with the juices being treated differently to produce two rather different styles from the same origin.
Here we have Tawny Dee, a classic tawny port, being aged in small barrels under the streets of Porto, the taste and aromas here are very much driven by the aging. More subtle and nuanced than the ruby, there's a whole lot of trail mix going on here with walnuts, cashews, and dried apricot and raisin.
