Quinta do Noval 20 Year Old Tawny Port
by JJ Buckley Fine Wines
On Sale: $59.94 (was: $79.94)
Quinta do Noval is indisputably one of the elite producers when it comes to Port, with recent releases of their Vintage Port and the prestigious ‘Nacional’ earning 97-100pts, but their classic and delicious 20 year old Tawny is a standout with all the depth and finesse this legendary house is known for. The Wine Advocate has described Noval’s Tawny Ports as “among my favorites — concentrated, classic and focused” along with “all of Noval's typical grace and elegance.” This is easily one of the best in its class and at 25% off our regular price, the perfect special occasion Port to stock up on for the winter season and beyond.
Noval takes a winemakers approach to Port, with a level of attention to detail you might expect from Burgundy as they use only estate grown grapes for this Tawny. That’s a rarity for Port and the quality they achieve is undeniable. This is an exceptional Tawny showing “warm toffee, hazelnut cream, roasted vanilla, cinnamon and walnut husk notes.” The best part about today’s Noval 20 year old Tawny is that no more aging is required and you can “dive in” per the Wine Advocate and enjoy today. Drink with a light chill as a pairing with strong cheeses or dark chocolate, or as a meditative dessert all on its own. Cheers!
