Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

The world’s oldest appellation would have French origins! Henry of Burgundy would have exported Burgundy’s vine stocks after he married the daughter of Alphonse VI of Leon.
Domain and appellation
Quinta Do Noval
Located in the heart of the Douro, the Maison Quinta do Noval has seen many developments. In 1920, it introduced the concept of the Tawny with an indication of age (10 years, 20 years and 40 years). It was the first to launch a “Late Bottled Vintage" port, Quinta do Noval LBV 1954, and still continues to lead the way today with the exclusive unfiltered Single Vineyard LBV.
- Terroir: Quinta do Noval is the only historic Port maison that bears the name of its vineyard. The vines grow in schist soils interspersed with clay.
