Quinta Do Noval Noval Ten Year Old Tawny Port NV
DEFINITION: This is a Port with an indication of its average age, aged in oak casks and taking on characteristics of walnuts, died fruits and spices, showing increasing intensity of colour, complexity, concentration and depth of flavour. Varietal Composition: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Francesa and Tinta Barroca predominate among the traditional grape varieties of the Demarcated Region of the Douro Valley. Vineyard Location: 100% from grapes of Quinta do Noval, Pinhão. Analysis: Alcohol: 21º % vol Residual Sugar: 127, 8 g/dm3 Total Acid: 5, 92 g/dm3 Tartaric Acid Ph: 3, 5 Barrel Type: old oak barrels of 640 liters. Bottling Date: Bottled according to demand. Barrel Time: the old tawnies spend their entire life in barrel until the moment of the final blend. Vinification: the grapes were trodden by foot and fermented in the traditional "lagares" of the Quinta, where a disciplined and intense treading is fundamental for a good final result.

Full bodied, sweet and rich in taste with an attractive nuttiness and a lingering finish in spite of its age.
External Reviews for Quinta Do Noval Noval Ten Year Old Tawny Port
There is plenty going on in Noval’s 20-year-old. It is a dry style, but the generous fruit combines marmalade and fresh citrus flavors, along with powerful ripeness. Acidity is there too, giving a lift at the end.

A complex blend of fresh and mature wines, this 20-Year-Old glistens with scents of sweet William and deeper tones of apricot and nectarine fruit leather. Savory wood spice layers the fruit and lasts. The flavors have some bounce, an elasticity that keeps the wine fresh and transparent.
My favorite of the three tawnys reviewed in this segment is the 20 Year Old Tawny. It offers an amber color, a spicy, tobacco, cedary, smoky, complex nose, dense, rich flavors that belie the color's aged, feeble look, and an expansive personality. It is a classic example of how delicious and complex a 20 year old tawny port can be. Tawny ports are aged in wood from essentially a solera system for the number of years indicated on the bottle. In most cases I prefer the younger ten or twenty year Tawnys to the ancient forty to fifty year old wines, but it is really a matter of taste. I tend to like more fruit rather than the oxidized and aged characteristics of the very old tawnys.
An elegant, delicate Tawny, with a full raft of dried white fruit, toffee, cream and butter flavors. The bright finish offers pear tart and spice notes, with suave, smoky overtones. Drink now.
This dry, balanced aged tawny is both fruity and showing good aging characters. Red fruits are cut with acidity and shaped by the old wood and spice flavors. It has a delicious, ripe aftertaste.
Notes of pie crust, cinnamon and sugar place this at the table in lieu of dessert. It’s a warming wine, both brisk and rich in its spice-cake flavors, sunny, schisty and taut.
