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.
