QUINTA DO NOVAL, VINTAGE PORT, 2003, Wood Presentation

Save €30 - was €30! Treat the port-lover to this beauty, presented in a wooden gift box with sliding lid. 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!

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.
