The 2013 is a traditional Noval blend of touriga nacional, touriga franca and tinto cão. As always, the grapes were trodden by foot and fermented in traditional lagares, with temperature held at 28ºc. The wine was then matured for 18 months in wooden barrels before bottling. This is classic Noval - a perfumed, pure-fruited wine of great finesse and freshness. - Bibendum Wine Co.
