Noval 10yo Tawny Port Bottling Note
Noval's 10 Year Old Tawny is a blend of old Ports from different vintages that have matured in oak casks. A mellow and complex wine that makes a brilliant match for a rich and chocolately dessert.
Carefully selected and aged for three years in oak, Tawny Port is lighter and softer than Ruby Port. It is an elegant, delicate wine with an amber hue and a fresh finish.
Testing Notes : Intense brick colour. It has a more complex nose than the Ruby, showing youthful fruit with a raspberry character. On the palate It is medium sweet with a well balanced fruit and richness. Drink it slightly chilled as an aperitif or at room temperature with a dessert."Carlos Agrellos, Technical Director
