Cedro Do Noval Vinho Regional Duriense Quinta Do Noval 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

An unfortified wine from Quinta Do Noval is an event indeed, and one that has<br/>been well worth the wait. Made from 30% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca ,<br/>10% Tinta Roriz and 30% ....drum- roll.....Syrah.....the wine<br/>combines the traditional 'port' varieties with the innovation from<br/>the Syrah. And does so rather well, the Syrah lending shape but also a silky<br/>charm to the fruit profile. <br/> <br/>The excellent 2007 vintage has ensured ripeness, but the superb winemaking team<br/>have been careful to avoid over-ripness or over-extraction. The palate is<br/>therefore both silky and savoury, with a character, almost floral, which gives<br/>it an identity all of its own. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)

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

A really good new blend! Reach, smooth and balanced. Condensation of red-black fruits is typical for Portuguese dry reds. The acidity is moderate and the tannins are round and plenty.
