Quinta do Noval Tawny Port 20 year old


SKU 9599100207


The 20 Year Old Tawny comes 100% from estate-grown grapes. It shows increasing characteristics of nuts, dried fruits and spices, as well as increasing complexity. Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca are the major grape varieties in the blend, all trodden by foot in the lagares at Quinta do Noval. As with the 10 Year Old, aging is in old oak barrels of 640 liters. The wine displays classic Tawny color, with golden highlights, and an ethereal bouquet. Elegant, velvety and concentrated on the palate, it has an attractive, lingering finish.

Wine EnthusiastThere is plenty going on in Noval's 20-year-old. It is a dry style, but the generous fruit combines marmalade and fresh citrus flavors, along with powerful ripeness. Acidity is there too, giving a lift at the end.

Wine SpectatorFruitier style of a 20-year-old, with caramel, light toffee and fruit character. Medium-bodied, with pleasant fruit and a simple finish. Slightly nutty.
