Quinta do Noval 2009 Colheita reveals a lovely amber colour with a dark tawny core. Very intense and concentrated on the nose, it presents a harmonious mix of nuts and spices aromas. Liquorice notes come together with toasted almond and younger fruity flavours. Some citrus notes then appear combined with its freshness and velvety texture giving a rich lively wine. This 2009 Colheita is wonderful and seductive with a long finish.

Quinta do Noval Description

Quinta do Noval Colheita is a rare Port produced in small quantities. It is a dated Tawny Port. Each Colheita takes its personality from the Quinta do Noval terroir and from the vintage, like our Vintage Port, but aged in barrels until bottling.

In exceptional years, certain lots of wine with great ageing potential are set aside to be aged in casks to become a Colheita, a dated Tawny Port. When we feel the wine is ready, usually after about 15 years, we will bottle some of this wine and offer it for sale. This 2009 Colheita was first bottled in 2022. The rest of our stocks of Colheita 2009 will continue to age in barrels for further bottlings in the future, when we consider the time to be right.

Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Tinto Cão and Sousão from Quinta do Noval's vineyard.

The grapes were trodden by foot and fermented in the traditional lagares of the Quinta, where a disciplined and intense treading is fundamental for a good final result.

The Colheitas are aged in old barrels called cascos, with a capacity of 640 litres, until the moment of bottling.

Wine Advocate: 93 Points

The 2009 Colheita Tawny Port is a typical field blend of grapes like Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Sousão and Tinta Roriz, bottled June 2022 with 117 grams of sugar, 20.6% alcohol and a long cork. In this big vintage, you get mouth-coating fruit and texture, fine depth and a delicious finish. You get a little extra oomph here, I think. The finish is laced with classic caramel and chocolate. It is fresh and rich, in great shape. This is only a little more aged than a 10 Year, but it overachieves (as does the price point, sort of). Anticipated Maturity: 2022-2050
