A visit to Portugal in 2019 just proved / reinforced how amazing Tawny Port can be. Smooth, nutty, great length, raisin sweetness........absolutely nothing not to like! Rich tawny colour, with an excellent nose of nuts and hints of mature fruit.
Yep you read right.....VP for $34! In non-declared years the best of the estate’s wines are bottled as single quinta Vintage Port (single vineyard). These wines share the same characteristic of the Warre’s style.
Silval is the name given to Noval's second tier Vintage Port, which is designed to be drunk far earlier than the top VPs. Even so, this wine is declared only in very good years and 2001 was good enough for a Nacional release.
'' Fresh, herbal, mineral and stony, this is a stunner in texture and electricity, all the while displaying subdued notes of juicy pears, sea salts and the brightest acidity.'' 91 Points, Anthony Gismondi
