Quinta do Noval Colheita Tawny Port 2009 (93 WA)

“The 2009 Colheita Tawny Port is a typical field blend of grapes like Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Sousão and Tinta Roriz, bottled June 2022 with 117 grams of sugar, 20.6% alcohol and a long cork. In this big vintage, you get mouth-coating fruit and texture, fine depth and a delicious finish. You get a little extra oomph here, I think. The finish is laced with classic caramel and chocolate. It is fresh and rich, in great shape. This is only a little more aged than a 10 Year, but it overachieves…” M.S 8/22

    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.
