Quinta do Noval 10 Years Old Tawny Port
This 10 Years Old Tawny Port by Quinta do Noval is a true quality sport with its waning red color! The beautiful color is created by the 10-year maturation in wooden barrels. Various indigenous grape varieties such as touriga nacional, touriga francesca, tinta barroca were used for this port. Fermentation took place in large traditional stone fermentation vessels.
The scent of this 10 Years Old Tawny Port offers nuances of dried plums and raisins and has a pleasant woody tone. The taste experience can be called velvety soft and haunting with notes of ripe fruit, raisins, humus, cocoa, leather and tobacco. This fantastic port it is a masterpiece by the cellar master of Noval. A very good port, quality from Portugal, hence the justified Parker rating of 91 points.
Port is a special wine in all respects. The method of preparation is absolutely unique. The fermentation of the grapes only lasts until there is sufficient unfermented sugar for the taste. Wine alcohol is then added up to a level of around 20 degrees. The fermentation stops abruptly, the young port wine is born. It is just like port wine with port wine; there are simple basic wines and there are "Grands Crus". The Quinta do Noval port house is such a Grand Cru on the Douro and Pinhão rivers where the soil consists of slate and granite.
Excellent for many moments of enjoyment: great with chocolate, almonds, walnuts and beautiful rich cheeses. Serve cool. Delicious with old cheeses.
