Quinta do Noval Branco Reserva 2022
“A well-oaked white, with an expressive overtone of aromatic spice and lime blossom notes. Shows crisp definition thanks to mouthwatering acidity and an underlying tang of salinity, a finely knit frame for flavors of baked melon and patisserie apple and pear fruit, toasted almond and hints of preserved lemon and dried mint. Viosinho and Gouveio.” -A.N 10/23
Douro Valley, Portugal
One of the oldest port houses, Quinta do Noval is also arguably the greatest. It is unique among top port houses in that most of the ports are made from estate-grown fruit and, notably, all of the vintage Noval wines are from the single Quinta do Noval vineyard.
