Description

The grapes were trodden by foot and fermented in the traditional lagares of the Quinta, where a disciplined and intensive treading is fundamental for a good final result. The Colheitas are aged in barrels until the moment of bottling.

About the producer

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.



Robert Parker Wine Advocate (robertparker.com):

The 2000 Colheita Tawny Port is a typical field blend of grapes like Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and Tinto Cão bottled in 2019 with 124 grams of sugar and a long cork. The last release seen was the 2015, but these are often bottled on demand. The class of the Tawny group this. Issue, this has the lushest and sweetest edge but equally fine structure and balance. Long on the finish, fresh but sexy, powerful but well integrated, this is brilliant. This isn't even a 20 Year Tawny yet, but it punches well above its weight. Craftsmanship and high-quality fruit make this a big winner. (Mark Squires) Points: 94. Issue Date: 30/10/2015
