Named after the emblematic cedar tree that dominates Quinta do Noval's terrace, Cedro do Noval is an authentic expression of the Douro. It is made at Quinta do Noval using carefully selected grapes 100 % grown on the highest steeply terraced vineyards of Quinta do Noval, in the heart of the Douro Valley, in Northern Portugal.
"Cedro do Noval white 2019 is a blend and presents a clear light golden color. The aroma is intense, fresh, slightly mineral with layers of fruit, floral notes and oak undertones. On the palate it is full and reveals all its freshness through a refreshing acidity and a long aftertaste. Excellent wine to match grilled fish and poultry."
Carlos Agrellos, Technical Director
