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.

Quinta do Noval - Fine Ports Since 1715

Please, drink responsibly

QUINTA DO NOVAL LBV UNFILTERED SINGLE VINEYARD


This wine is a remarkable example of the Noval style. Treated exactly like a Vintage Port with only noble grape varieties from the Quinta, trodden by foot and unfiltered. Its main difference is that it is aged for four, sometimes five years in wooden vats instead of the two years typical of Vintage Ports. Definitely an LBV with a difference, with fine structured tannins, great freshness and purity of fruit. It is delicious to drink today, but will age beautifully in its bottle. This is our “Baby Vintage“.


Our difference: an unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage made only with grapes from our vineyard.

WHERE THE GRAPES COME FROM
All the grapes come from the Quinta do Noval vineyard.

VINIFICATION

Grapes are trodden by foot to obtain the must, then during fermentation are pressed in lagares, the traditional stone vats from the Quinta. More


MATURING

The wine matures for at least 4 years in oak casks instead of 2 years for a Classic Vintage. This explains its name, “Late Bottled Vintage”. Longer maturing in casks helps provide a smoother wine and gives it its very approachable style, ready to drink as soon as it is bottled.
