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 40 YEAR OLD TAWNY


THE ULTIMATE EXPRESSION
OF THE NOVAL AGED TAWNY STYLE

 
Discovering a very old Tawny and its unique aromas


The remarkable quintessence of Noval Tawny style, a profoundly concentrated and complex old wine, the memory of the house… The initial red fruit colours have now faded away to be replaced by a rich dark brown hue with wonderful green and yellow hints around the edges, characteristic of very old wood-aged Ports. Yet the wine still retains a wonderful freshness and balance. 



Noval 40 year old Tawny is a blend of old Ports from different vintages that have matured all their life in oak casks, with an average age of 40 years.
