“I really love wines from this estate.” Victoria Moore, The Telegraph October 2016
Lying in the heart of the Douro Valley in Northern Portugal, Quinta do Noval has been producing some of the world’s most highly sought after Vintage Ports since 1715. Winemaker Christian Seely has dreamt for years of making top quality unfortified red wines, which express the unique terroir of Noval’s steep sloping vineyards. He has finally achieved his dream, one of which is the excellent Cedro do Noval.
Quinta do Noval LBV (late bottle vintage) Port Unfiltered 2011 is made from the noble Port grape varieties sourced from Quinta do Noval’s vineyards, By not filtering, it adds to the wine’s complexity. Aged in oak casks for at least 4 years, this wine is smooth with finely structured tannins, rich chocolate and fresh blackberry notes. The finish is long and luxurious. Quinta do Noval LBV Port Unfiltered 2011 is drinking beautifully now and has the potential to age in bottle.
