Product details

Winemaking

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.

Tasting Notes

Early tastings are revealing lovely, dry red wines with intense colour and aromatic power, elegant and well-structured. The Portos vinified in the lagares are proving to be both aromatic and powerful, an excellent start which hints at the strong overall quality we’ve seen this year, with some batches potentially worthy of Vintage status. A strong year, with a great deal of promise.

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.

Food Pairing

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