Product details

Winemaking

The grapes are taken essentially from the Quinta do Noval vineyard, but also from A-rated vineyards at the heart of the Douro Valley. All the grapes from the Quinta do Noval vineyard are trodden by foot to obtain the must, then during fermentation are pressed in lagares, the traditional stone vats from the Quinta. It is matured for 18 months in seasoned wooden casks.

Tasting Notes

Black in colour. Dark berry and fruit in the nose. Medium body, with lots of tannins. Loaded with fruit. Berry in flavour and a nice finish.

Store and serve advices

Serve at cellar temperature (15/17°). Recommended to separate the sediment from this unfiltered port. Although ready to drink when young, it has the structure it needs to improve and mature in the bottle. It is best drunk 2 to 10 years after bottling. Drink within 48 hours after openning.

Food Pairing

Particularly enjoyable with a dessert, with dark chocolate or cheese. Also on its own at the end of a meal.
