Quinta do Noval 10 Year Old Tawny Port
A perfect expression of the Noval Tawny style. It has acquired the classical attributes of an old Tawny Port, while at the same time retaining much of the freshness and fruit of its youth.
“A beautiful Old Tawny colour, recognisable from its brilliance. Amongst the complex aromas, young and very lively fruit blends prettily with appealing and typical aromas of dry fruit such as hazelnut. Rich and smooth on the palate, it delivers an elegant structure and long lingering finish.”
Carlos Agrellos, Technical Director

The grapes were trodden by foot and fermented in the traditional lagares of the Quinta, to obtain the best extraction.
Noval Tawny 10 years is a blend of old Ports from different vintages, matured in oak casks and with an average age of 10 years.
Wine Spectator – “A fresh, vibrant style, showing cherry and red currant pâte de fruit notes, with blood orange and rooibos tea flavors. Light cinnamon and mineral nuances add to the streamlined finish.” (92 Pts)
Jeb Dunnuck – “The Quinta Do Noval 10 Year Old Tawny offers up a semi-opaque ruby hue as well as a tons of cigar wrapper, chocolate, espresso, and candied black olive aromas, just to name a few. It’s complex, medium to full-bodied, and rounded on the palate, with plenty of fruit as well as complexity. Aged in oak in a solera system for multiple years, this is in a sweet spot for me, with a solid mix of sweet fruit and some complex, spicy, tertiary nuances.” (92 Pts)
Decanter – “Warm aromas of coffee, red fruit and cocoa, followed by soft yet rich and spicy flavours of nutty red fruit, flowing onto a gently spirity finish.” (90 Pts)
