This is a Port of only one harvest, produced in a year of good quality, red and full bodied, of good aroma and palate and which is recognized by the "Instituto do Vinho do Porto" as having the right to use the description "Late Bottled Vintage" or "L.B.V.".

Tinta Roriz, Touriga Francesa and Touriga Nacional predominate among the traditional grape varieties of the Demarcated Region of the Douro Valley.

The wine is made 70% from grapes of Quinta do Noval, and 30% from "A" quality grapes from our traditional suppliers, in the heart of the Douro Valley.

Ageing: Four and a half years in old wooden vats, in the air-conditioned cellars of the Quinta in the Demarcated Region of the Douro Valley before bottling.

The grapes were trodden by foot and fermented in the traditional lagares of the Quinta, where a disciplined and intense treading is fundamental for a good final result.

Deep rich brick red colour, ripe vigorous and fruity nose. A vigorous mouthful of fresh red fruits, with a solid tannic structure and a long harmonious finish. Ideally to be served as an accompaniment to cheese, dessert, or on its own at the end of a meal.

This wine is unfiltered and will continue to develop in the bottle. As a result, it may throw a light deposit and need decanting.
