Tasting Notes
All the grapes come from the Quinta do Noval vineyard. This wine is a remarkable example of the Noval style. Treated exactly like a Vintage Port with only noble grape varieties from the Quinta, trodden by foot and unfiltered. Its main difference is that it is aged for four, sometimes five years in wooden vats instead of the two years typical of Vintage Ports. Definitely an LBV with a difference, with fine structured tannins, great freshness and purity of fruit. It is delicious to drink today, but will age beautifully in its bottle. It presents an intensely deep red colour, with aromas of ripe cherry. In mouth features fresh red fruit with a elegant and velvety tannin structure and a long aftertasteAll the grapes come from the Quinta do Noval vineyard.
