A simple young wine from Noval, a maker of port for nearly 300 years. The colour is more ruby-red than tawny, and the nose is fruity without showing much in the way of age. Cherry, chocolate, raisin and earthy spirit aromas lead into a very sweet, lighter style of good persistence and balance. 4 stars.
Noval's Tawny NV is an elegant, fleshy wine with good richness and a fresh, tangy finish. Tinta Roriz, Touriga Francesca and Tinta Barroca are the major grape varieties here, sourced from both the Estate and "A-category" suppliers. This wine is aged for three years-plus in large oak vats before the final blending and bottling. Noval’s wine tends to be darker and have more fruitcake richness than most wine in the market. This is a legacy of the quality of material involved and the higher rate of evaporation that occurs in Douro – as opposed to Vila Nova de Gaia – that concentrates the grape’s natural residual sugars.
Showcasing an intense brick colour, this has a complex nose with youthful cherry fruit and anise. On the palate, it is medium-sweet, with rich fruit and a fresh finish. Try it slightly chilled as an aperitif – as they do at the Estate (and in France) – or enjoy at room temperature with dark chocolate desserts or coffee.
