Quinta do Noval Colheita is a rare Port produced in small quantities.
It is a dated Tawny Port.
Each Colheita takes its personnality from the Quinta do Noval terroir
and from the vintage, like our Vintage Port, but aged in barrels until
bottling.

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE 2005 VINTAGE
The winter of 2004 registered temperatures above average and the
rainfall was 74% below the average of the past 30 years. These
weather conditions accelerated the vine cycle until the start of
ripening, that began on the first week of August, that then continued
in very dry conditions and high temperatures. The low water reserves
before the September rains led to smaller grapes albeit more
concentrated. Rain finally arrived on the 6th of September greatly
improving the quality in the vineyards that could wait until ideal
ripeness.
The harvest was then divided into two periods: 29th of August until
the 4th of September. Then a break between the 5th and the 18th of
September. It was restarted on the 19th of September and ended the
harvest on the 16th of October. The harvest turned out to be a
successful one and the wines produced show remarkable
character and balance.

The Colheita 2005 has a complex nose that combines nuttiness with
elegant fruit. It has a silky texture with a soft tannic backbone.
Some exotic flavours and caramel on the palate provide a lingering
finish. This excelent Colheita Port offers a full, sweet, rich and
smooth taste that lingers for a long time.
