  • Rating: The 2007 Noval Silval Vintage Port has a stylish bouquet of lavender, spice box, damp earth, blueberry, and black currant that leaps from the glass. This is followed by a relatively lightweight but elegant wine that has plenty of savory fruit, moderate structure, and a precocious personality. It should be drinking at its best by 2017 and will provide pleasure through 2027.
    This is a wonderfully focused and intense young Vintage Port, with notes of flowers, crushed berries and cherry. Full-bodied and very sweet, with ripe berry and jam flavors. Long and powerful. Best after 2016. 1,000 cases made. -JS
    The lighter vintage from Noval lives up to its style, well balanced, fresh, showing the fruitiness of the year. It is elegant, with everything already in balance. R.V.
    Bright ruby. High-pitched, very ripe aromas of blackberry, spicecake, licorice pastille and rose petal, with a whiff of brandy. Impressively tactile and concentrated, with a three-dimensional texture to the rich flavors of blackberry, bitter chocolate, flowers and spices. Distinctly high-pitched, even a bit youthfully aggressive, but wonderfully pure wine. Finishes broad and long, with lovely sweetness and impressive grip. A superb showing, and a very good value in the context of vintage port.

  • Tasting Notes:
  • Technical Notes: Because so little Quinta do Noval Vintage Port is produced, there are often superb lots that can be bottled under the Silval label.Stylistically, Silval is a serious Vintage Port that can hold its own in any company, but can also be enjoyed at a younger age andmore affordable price than Noval. As with Noval, all grapes are trodden by foot and fermented in traditional vats at the Quinta.
