Quinta do Noval Colheita Tawny Port 2007 (97 DE)

“Declared as a vintage by most shippers including Noval, 2007 was a relatively cool year in the Douro with wines characterised by their purity of fruit. Mid-deep and still quite youthful in colour with a lovely orange-tawny glint; forthcoming on the nose with a complex creamy-floral character along with a touch of malt and spice; soft and sublime on the palate, sweet but a touch savoury toasted almonds character too, piqued with peppery tannins and leading to a long, beautifully lithe finish.”

    Colheita is a Vintage Tawny Port. Whereas Tawnies with an indication of age show the House style, Vintage Tawnies show the personality of the vintage year. Colheita spends its entire life in barrel until the moment of bottling. On the nose they are fresh, powerful and fruit-forward with balanced acidity. On the palate they have a nutty, oxidized character with a seductively smooth finish.

    One of the oldest port houses, Quinta do Noval is also arguably the greatest. It is unique among top port houses 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.
