A Port is a wine produced with wine batches selected from a single harvest, and that have a great capacity for ageing. On average, a Harvest must be placed to agek in oak casks for at least seven years before being bottled. The Noval Harvest 1976 is a Port wine with a yellow-brown colour and with delicious citrus aromas. On the palate has quite rich and complex flavours, presenting the typical flavour of an old Port with the freshness and vigour of a younger Port.
This Port is produced from the grapes varieties of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Francesa, harvested in Quinta do Noval and Pinhã, which are of the most traditional of the Demarcated Douro Region. The Noval Harvest 1976 does not require decanting before serving, because it usually does not create deposit. We recommend serving this Port slightly fresh and with a good cheese, or a rich dessert. It can also be enjoyed by itself as an aperitif at the beginning of a meal. Winemaker: Antonio Agrellos. Prizes: 84 points – The Wine Advocate; Silver Medal-International Wine Challenge
Croft 2003 Vintage Port
This Port is fragrant and possesses wild black fruit aroma and an exotic touch.
The aroma burst from the glass: blackberry, blueberry, violets, cassis and morning dew, all with a fantastic setting.
It is full-bodied, magnificent and majestic on the mouth, with a better definition and approach than ancient Port wine. Blackberry and blueberry flavours provide a mineral sense that crosses at the finish, with an imperceptible alcohol.
This is a good choice for a Vintage Port and to savour pleasurably on several occasions.Ageing process:
Aged for 24 months in oak casks and then in bottles for several years.
Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage 2000 is a Port wine produced in small quantities, and was the first 21st-century Vintage of Quinta do Vesuvio. It is a wine of a rich and opulent dark purple colour, with aromas of violets. On the palate, it is possible to taste mature fruits and the tannins are firm. One of the best wines from Quinta do Vesuvio, now available in an eddition of 4, 5Lt. (6 bottles). Do not miss this amazing opportunity.
Dow's Quinta Sra. Da Ribeira Vintage 2012 is a wine with aroma of violets from the vineyards of Touriga Franca which are oriented to the South and in the year of its production reached a perfect ripeness. In this wine is still possible to find slight aromas of blackberry and currant, making it fragrant and fruity wine.
