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.
Purple/black in colour, it is incredibly pure and concentrated with good depth. The palate is intense beyond belief with very sweet blackberries and on the nose you will find cassis, chocolate, liquorice and spice. The tannins are sweet with the wine filling the mouth on entrance and the finish is long. This port is ready to drink and will continue to be over the next thirty years.
Store and Serve Advices:

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.
