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.
