Quinta do Noval, Vintage Port, 2003

Save €30 - Was €129.95 An amazing, and rare, vintage port produced using several grape varieties and not just Touriga Nacional. These varieties are some of the noblest to be found in the Douro valley: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão and Sousão. 2003 saw one of the wettest winters followed by the hottest summer - making this one of the best vintages there is! Quinta do Noval Vintage 2003 is matured in seasoned oak vats and has aged beautifully. The fruit profile is very generous - dates, plums, black cherries - divine! Normally €130 this is now priced at €99.95.

Press Quote "The inky, purple-colored, opaque 2003 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port soars from the glass, revealing dates, black cherries, copious flowers, and plums. Full-bodied, broad, and lush, this top-flight wine is harmonious and exhibits stupendous purity of fruit. Blueberries, cherries, and candied strawberries can be found in its nuanced, lengthy, plum-laced core as well as in its immensely long, dried berry-tinged finish. Drink this beauty between 2020 and 2045+." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #161, Oct 2005. "Purplish crimson. Prunes and herbs on the nose - rather interesting and captivating already! Very competent and lively. Lots hidden there. Well made. Lots of alcohol on the finish but a good charge of both fruit and tannin. Inky at this stage. 17.5/20." Jancis Robinson, May 2005.
