Quinta do Noval

750ML

£250.00

A rare gem, a much smaller but extremely high quality harvest means 97 Quinta do Noval is far less easily found compared to other vintages. A powerful, deep and concrentrated vintage port with a rich core of overripe and dried fruit on the nose. The palate is filled with sweet spice, chocolate and white pepper. Savour with a variety of hard cheeses.

    The 1997 Quinta do Noval Vintage 93 has a glorious bouquet that represents a significant step up from the 1994 Vintage Noval. Initially, it is broody and bides its time before opening with dusky blackberry and bilberry fruit, leather, scorched earth and Provencal herbs. It is well-defined and barely seems to have aged in the intervening years. It is rounder in the mouth compared to the Nacional: soft and supple with a spicier finish. Packed full of flavor, this is an impressive Noval that is beginning to drink now and should continue to do so for 20+ years. Drink now-2040.
