Dessert & Fortified Wine | Port
Quinta do Noval Black Port Wine is a revolutionary style of ruby port. The bright aromatics, incredible freshness and perfect balance bring it outside the stodgy "vintage-character" category. It is a delightful dryish-styled Port where exceedingly pure blackberry and boysenberry fruits dominate the palate while the finish is thankfully devoid of alcoholic overtones. Some of the grapes come from the Quinta do Noval vineyard, the rest from A-rated vineyards at the heart of the Douro valley. Noval Black is a blend of wines with an average of 2 to 3 years, aged in wooden and stainless steel vats to preserve its freshness. It is a clear expression of the Noval style, no aging, and no decanting necessary. No complications, just a great glass of Port. The style of Quinta do Noval Black Porto is entirely about emphasizing the quality of this fruit through the use of estate fruit, gentle handling, and vinification aiming for transparency. You could say it is the most wine-like of ruby reserve ports, and that is the secret to its flexibility, in cocktails, chilled, and even on ice. The custom-designed bottle is distinctive, modern yet timeless, reflecting the uniqueness of Noval Black. It is merely the most beautiful port bottle we've seen. Noval Black is a new way to drink Port, a new-age Port destined to be enjoyed with a dessert, with dark chocolate, cheese, or simply drunk chilled, also used as a cocktail ingredient. Even on its own at the end of a meal. Enjoy!
