Noval Colheita Tawny Port 2005

75cl

This Colheita is a rare port from a single vintage, which really expresses the terroir. 2005 was an unusually hot and dry year, that produced a wine of great character and balance. On the nose it is elegant, with aromas of roasted nuts, dried fig, spices and caramel. On the palate it is velvety, with ripe tannins, full body and rich flavours of dried fruits. Perfect paired with aged cheese or an almond tart.
