Quinta do Noval 2003

75 cl

2003 saw one of the wettest winters followed by the hottest summers. This off-the-charts weather pattern resulted in high levels of sugar and acidity. In other word, the ideal combination for perfect balance. As a result, the vintage stands out for its structure, deep colour and complexity of aromas.

Awards and/or Press Quotes
Robert Parker 94 Points The inky, purple coloured, opaque 2003 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port soars from the glass, revealing dates, black cherries, copious flowers and plums. Full-bodied, broad and lush, this top flight wine is harmonious and exhibits stupendous purity of fruit. Blueberries, cherries and candied strawberries can be found in its nuanced, lengthy plum-laced core as well as in its immensely long, dried berry-tinged finish.'
