Intense. Explosive aromatics, explosive palate. Floral and very spicy, with Brazil nut, fig, citrus zest, baking spices, fruitcake and licorice. Super vibrant and lifted, mouth coating and very long. Immensely powerful with a very long life ahead. Waters Wine Co

 

“Wonderfully complex with elegant bright red fruits and lovely lively spiciness. Lively and fresh with real complexity, this is expressive and precise.” 95 Points – Jamie Goode, Wineanorak.com

 

The Portuguese word colheita means ‘harvest’. A Colheita Port must be from a single year and aged for a minimum of seven years in wood before bottling. In practice many are aged for considerably longer (as is the case at Noval) and so Colheita Ports can vary greatly in style.

Noval’s Colheita is only made in exceptional years, when certain lots of wine with great aging potential are set aside to be aged in cascos (old casks with a capacity of 640 litres). When Noval feels the wine is ready—usually after about 15 years—a portion is bottled for release. The rest of the stocks of will continue to age in barrel for bottlings in the future.
