Quinta Noval Black

Quinta Noval Black 750ml     
Sku: 12795

As one of the oldest port houses, Quinta do Noval is unique in that most of the ports are made from estate-grown fruit and, notably, all of the vintage Noval wines are from the single Quinta do Noval vineyard. As Robert Parker writes in his 2005 book, The World's Greatest Wine Estates: "Quinta do Noval is unusual among the great traditional Port houses in that it emphasizes the importance of the vineyard. The aim is to produce classic Vintage Ports that are harmonious and elegant expressions of Quinta do Noval's terroir. Strict selection in the vineyard, low yields, and strict selection again in the tasting room result in a small production.”

Tasting notes
The bright aromatics, freshness and balance may be enjoyed at anytime.

Shows beautiful aromas of sliced plum and peach, with raspberry jam. Medium-bodied and lightly sweet, with fine tannins and a fruity finish. Refined and pretty. This is a new Port from Noval that is supposed to attract new consumers and please old ones. Might work. Drink now. –JS

Technical notes
BLACK is a revolutionary new style of port that showcases the same legendary terroir as Quinta do Noval's great vintage ports.
