Quinta do Noval Vintage 2017 Port wine is characterized by its purity of fruit and a fine and delicate quality that is typical of the wines of the property in general, but finds its most remarkable and lasting expression in Vintage Ports. Balance, harmony, finesse and elegance are the hallmarks of our great Vintage Port wines, which are declared only when they believe that the year has produced a blend, however small, worthy of the Quinta do Noval seal.
Store and Serve Advices:
Serve at cellar temperature (15/17°). Decantation is recommended to separate the sediment. This cellar wine will mature over the years and develop a complex variety of aromas. You can also enjoy it when young to taste the intensity of its fruit. It is best drunk 4 to 40 years after bottling. Drink within 48 hours after openning.
Particularly enjoyable with a dessert, with dark chocolate or cheese. Also on its own at the end of a meal.
