Noval Vintage 2012

100.00 VAT incl.

Outstanding Port. The first tastings reveal charming red wines, dry, with an intense color and aromatic power, elegant and well-structured. The Ports vinified in the mills are proving to be aromatic and potent, an excellent start that hints at the strong overall quality we’ve seen this year, with some batches potentially worthy of Vintage status. A strong year, with many promises.

Vinification:
Vintage Ports are only declared in major years (3 or 4 years in a decade) and only when the wines meet Noval’s exacting standards. All the grapes come from the Quinta do Noval vineyard. The grapes are trodden on foot to obtain the must, then during fermentation they are macerated to obtain the best possible extraction in the mills, the traditional stone vats of the Quinta. It is matured for 18 months in wooden vats of various capacities.
Grape varieties:
old vines

Advice for Store and Serve:
Serve at cellar temperature (15/17°). Decanting is recommended to separate the sediment. This cellar wine matures over the years and develops a complex array of aromas. You can also enjoy it when young to feel the intensity of its fruit. It is best drunk 4 to 40 years after bottling. Drink within 48 hours of opening.

Food pairing:
Particularly pleasant with a dessert, with dark chocolate or cheese. Also on its own at the end of a meal.
