Berrys Own Selection Lbv Quinta Do Noval 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a traditional LBV, an important and oft-overlooked distinction; it isbottled a little later than more commercial LBV wines and, more importantly, isbottled unfiltered and so may throw a sediment,in homage no doubt to itsillustrious vintage cousins. The 2003 LBV is dark, with deep black fruits onthe nose, complemented by hints of sousbois and licorice; the palate is dense,pleasingly sweet and extremely long. The tannins are finely grained andbeautifully integrated. The ensemble is very complete and extremely satisfying.

Quinta do Noval is situated in the very heart of the Douro valley, in the Cima Corgo, just two kilometres from the small town of Pinhão. As you approach the entrance to the quinta from Pinhão, you will see the famous broad terraces of Quinta do Noval on the right. The Quinta, which is principally situated in the valley of the small Pinhao river, a tributary of the Douro, has approximately 145 hectares of vines, ranging in altitude from 100 metres, at the level of the Pinhao river, to 350 metres at the summit of the valley. The Quinta is approached by a long drive, covered by trellised vines. This is the first view of the quinta that you see as you drive up. Read less
