remontage


“Remontage” consists in pumping up the wine from the bottom of the vat in order to sprinkle the “cap” (grape skin and pips which rise to the surface). The process optimises the extraction of colour and tannins.

NOVAL SILVAL VINTAGE



Silval is a particularly open and accessible style of Vintage Port, with the accent on exuberance of fruit. 


Made for lovers of Vintage Port who do not want to wait too long, it can be enjoyed when young and very fruity. This is a serious Vintage Port which will also repay years of cellar ageing.
