Quinta do Noval Fine Ruby Port
This excellent Ruby Port introduces you to the "simplest" port of the "Shipper" Quinta do Noval, which more than proves its reputation as a top house. The delicious, young and powerful port is produced from a mix of the 5 best grape varieties from the Douro. In the vineyards of the Douro, 40 varieties can be found in the different classified vineyards. The port has a deep ruby red color, the scent offers primary fruit from the grapes and in the taste you can taste raisins, black forest fruits and a hint of southern fruits. An elegant, loby port with powerful fruit flavors and nuances of licorice, cocoa and vanilla. A wonderful long finale completes the enjoyment of this port.
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.
