Description

A perfect expression of the Noval Tawny style. It has acquired the classical attributes of an old Tawny Port, while at the same time retaining much of the freshness and fruit of its youth. Noval 10 year old Tawny is a blend of old Ports from different vintages, with an average age of 10 years and that have matured in oak casks. Old Tawnies spend their whole life in casks. The average maturing age for blended wines is 10, 20 or over 40 years. This is when they take on notes of walnut, dry fruit and spice and reveal growing intensity of color, complexity, concentration and depth of aroma. The length of time the wine was in contact with oxygen during the maturing process. For example, an old tawny spends its life in a cask and so enjoys prolonged contact with oxygen. After opening, a bottle of tawny can be enjoyed for several weeks. A Vintage is matured in casks only for a relatively short period. It ages more when bottled with very little contact with the outside. As a result, it will oxygenise quickly after opening. This is why we recommend drinking the wine within 48 hours.
