Vintage Ports are declared only in great years (3 or 4 years in a decade) and only when the wines come up to Noval’s exacting standards. All the grapes come from the Quinta do Noval vineyard. Grapes are trodden by foot to obtain the must, then during fermentation macerate to obtain the best possible extraction in the lagares, the traditional stone vats from the Quinta. It is matured for 18 months in wooden vats of various capacities.
Very fresh, intense delicate fruit, lovely balance, very long. Full in mouth but delicate at the same time. Good depth and volume.
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.
