Quinta do Noval Vintage Port 2013


Lovely dark purple colour, seductive Douro wild flower aromas and purity of fruit. Completes a remarkable trio of declarations with 2011 and 2012,each with their own character, but unmistakably Noval in style.

In 2013 the winter was extremely wet, with heavy rain until April 2013. This restored the soils water reserves, which were very low after 2 dry years. A cool and wet spring preceded a dry hot summer, with virtually no rain. These climatic conditions resulted in a low production year of great quality. The grapes were foot trodden and fermented in the traditional ‘lagares’ of the Quinta, where a disciplined and intense treading is fundamental for a good final result. The wine is fortified using grape spirit from traditional suppliers in the douro, the wine is then aged for 18months in wooden casks.
