Quinta do Noval Colheita Tawny Port 2009 (94 JS)
“The aromas of cherry, toffee, caramel, and candied orange are so welcoming. The palate is full and medium-sweet with a lovely berry, nut and light chocolate aftertaste.” J.S 8/22
Quinta do Noval
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.
Douro Valley, Portugal
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.
