1937 Quinta do Noval Colheita

Post by DRT » 10:55 Sat 13 Oct 2007

From a tasting of Noval Colhieta from 1937 to 1986 in the Noval shop in VNG on 30 Sep 07 - see review here

Darkest of the line-up. Thick, with huge tears sticking to the inside of the glass. Very smooth and elegant. Huge complexity and an immense finish that went on forever. The top wine in the line-up by some considerable distance and thanks to Brian for sharing it with us.

Quote from Sean C. " The 37 is like sweet and sour chicken" - your guess is as good as mine as to what this actually means :lol: :lol:
