Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Varietal Composition: Touriga Nacional; Tinto Cão; Touriga Franca; Tinta Roriz; Sousão.

The wine was made entirely from grapes of QUINTA do NOVAL –Vale de Mendiz – Pinhão - in the heart of the Douro valley.

This wine is produced exclusively from selected plots on the Quinta and trodden by foot in our lagares and is only declared when various factors combine to make an exceptional year. Intensely powerful and concentrated, this wine is adapted to age in bottle, developing over years, releasing a complex variety of flavors.

Critical Acclaim

"With its inky dark color, this is darkly dense, a huge mouthful of black fruits and dark, initially medicinal flavors and firm, concentrated tannins. It will age 20 years at least, but its sweet, ripe fruit suggest it could be drunk much earlier than that. "
93 Points

"Has lots of grapey, stemmy, rich aromas. Full-bodied, lightly sweet and chewy, with plenty of grip. Layered and rich. Serious and structured. All there for the vintage. Best after 2017."
92 Points

"This blend is extreme in its structural tension, a vast amount of blackberry and datelike fruit pulled in the direction of searingly dry, mineral tannin. The alcohol increases that impression of austerity. Bottle age should relieve some of the tension; for best enjoyment beyond 15 years from the vintage."

Learn About Port

Port Wine Port is a fortified wine that is made by adding brandy during fermentation. The addition of spirits kills the yeasts, which in turn halts the fermentation process. This results in a wine both sweet and high in alcohol. Named for its home city Oporto, true Port must come from the designated area. The grapes used are a blend,, but the favored grape thought to...
