Light orange-pinkish hue showing lots of evolution. Christian mentioned that there was too much produced in terms of extraordinary yields from this particular vintage. The 1963 is showing pretty mature, mostly Tawny nuances of figs and caramel with some alcohol on the unimpressive and hot finish that had a medicinal edge to the aftertaste. It was my least favorite wine of the tasting.

A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. 1963 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

Definition: Carefully selected and aged for three years in oak, Tawny Port is lighter and softer than Ruby Port. It is an elegant, delicate wine with an amber hue and a fresh finish. Varietal Composition: Tinta Roriz, Touriga Francesa and Tinta Barroca predominate among the traditional grape varieties of the Demarcated Region of the Douro Valley. Vineyard Location: Â" A Â"quality grapes from our traditional suppliers in the heart of the Douro Valley Analysis: Alcohol: 19,4º % vol Residual Sugar: 87,1 g/dm3 Total Acid: 4,12 g/dm3 Tartaric Acid Ph: 3,58 Barrel Type: Big oak vats Bottling Date: Bottled according to demand. Barrel Time: 3 years Vinification: The Noval Tawny is vinified by pump over in stainless steel vats with temperature control at 26º/28º C. Tasting Notes: intense brick colour. It has a more complex nose than the Ruby, showing youthful fruit with a raspberry character. On the palate It is medium sweet with a well balanced fruit and richness. Drink it slightly chilled as an aperitif or at room temperature with a dessert.
