Quinta do Noval Tawny Port 40 year old


SKU 14862


Noval's noble 40 Year Old Tawny shows more and more complex flavors and concentration. Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Francesca and Tinta Barroca are the major grape varieties. All grapes were estate grown, and trodden by foot and fermented in the lagares at Quinta do Noval. The wines were aged until bottling in oak barrels of 640 liters. This light amber wine expresses an extremely rich and complex nutty bouquet, reminiscent of mint and almonds. Full bodied, sweet and rich in taste, it has an attractive nuttiness and a remarkable lingering finish despite its age.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a sweet but deliciously mature wine that exudes the richness of its burnt orange flavors, layers of sweet toffee, and clean, hugely rich aftertaste. A great wine. Imported by William Grant & Sons, Inc.

Wine AdvocateThe 40 Year Old Tawny was a tad too old for my tastes. The wine was spicy, with an old cellar, stale, nutty aroma that seems to have greater appeal in the United Kingdom than elsewhere in the world. 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.
