Quinta do Noval Branco Douro Reserva 2021
“A compact, medium-bodied white, with graphite, quinine and spice notes lacing poached apple and quince fruit, pastry and lemon preserves. The profile is coiled around racy acidity, keeping this focused and refreshing through to the lingering, chalk-tinged finish. Viosinho and Gouveio.” A.N 2/23
Quinta do Noval
Douro Valley, Portugal
One of the oldest port houses, Quinta do Noval is also arguably the greatest. It is unique among top port houses in that most of the ports are made from estate-grown fruit and, notably, all of the vintage Noval wines are from the single Quinta do Noval vineyard.
