Quinta do Noval is a centuries-old Portuguese winery whose name is legendary within the port wine world. Noval Late Bottled Vintage Port 2013 reveals a deep ruby color. It presents a very fine tannic structure with a solid backbone. The fruit is very elegant and pure. Wild black fruits and spicy notes dominate in this ready to drink LBV. Grapes were trodden by foot to obtain the must, then during fermentation macerate to obtain the best possible extraction in the "lagares", the traditional stone vats from the Quinta. The wine matured 4 years in large wooden barrels called Tonéis, instead of 2 years for a Classic Vintage. This explains its name, "Late Bottled Vintage". The wood that is used has over 30 years of age so that no wood flavours are transmitted to the wine.
