Both wines made at the estate are from specially selected parcels of new and mature vines around the spectacular estate, and blended from four classic port varities: Touriga Nacional, Tintao Cão, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz. True to its long history of continuous innovation, Noval has also been among the first to experiment with Rhone varieties in the Douro, with Syrah from estate plantings being blended into the Cedro do Noval.
"A solid red with fine and polished tannins and dark berry and chocolate character. Medium to full body and a fresh finish. Undertones of hazelnuts and blueberries. Drink now.” -James Suckling
Serving and pairing suggestions
Six Grapes is bottled ready to drink after about five years of cask aging. It has a t-cap closure, which means that you don't need a corkscrew to open it and that it should stay fresh for up to two months if stored in a cool, dark place or the refrigerator. Serve it in a glass with at least a six ounce capacity so that you may appreciate the wine's aromas. Six Grapes pairs particularly well with dark chocolate, but is also fantastic on its own as a luscious dessert in a glass.
Pair with: chocolate desserts, such as chocolate mousse, creamy blue cheeses like Stilton or Roquefort.
The House of Sandeman was founded in London in 1790 by George Sandeman, a determined young Scotsman. From a modest start two hundred years ago as a wine merchant in the City of London, to today's impressive lodges in Oporto and bodegas in Jerez, and the world's best known brand of Port and Sherry, there has been a continuous commitment to quality. In 1980, Sandeman became part of Seagram; today, as the seventh generation of the family and Chairman of the old firm, George Sandeman continues the Sandeman commitment to the quality of Sandeman Ports and Sherries, and to the future.
Sandeman Tawny Porto has the fruit and style of great Porto, but with an added finesse. Clear red amber with a light yet intense body, it opens up to aromas of vanilla and evolved dried fruits. The elegant harmony and fresh flavor of red fruits unfold in the mouth and combines with the complexity of wood aging and a good finish, evoking raisins and tender hazelnut flavor.
Founded in 1670, Warre & Co. is the oldest British company in Portugal and one of the most highly esteemed port shipping firms in the world. It was the first Port company to build a lodge in Gaia for the proper ageing of its Ports.
Ruby color with a garnet rim. This Late Bottle-aged Vintage port (LBV, meaning the port spent about as long in oak as a ruby port but then a much longer time in bottle before release) shows mature red and dark fruits on the nose (red cherries) and floral notes of elderflowers. The palate is elegant and full of finesse with a backbone of freshness and flavors of red cherries and floral notes. The finish is long and lingering.
