Noble & Murat 2012 LBV
A blend from four plots of very old field blend vines growing in the Vale de Mendiz, Tedo Valley and close to Donelo. Vinified in exactly the same way as the Vintage Port. Bottled in the fifth year after ageing in large ancient chestnut vats. The wine has intense aromas of black and red fruit typical of a warmer growing season, balanced by a dryer palate and a lively acidity. The additional ageing has polished the tannins, rounding the wine without damaging its ageing potential.
