Wine of the Week “An inviting approachable but cellar-worthy Portuguese red from the team at the Quinta do Noval port estate in an excellent vintage. Generous perfumed and fruity with floral notes dark cherry damson and a touch of liquorice carried by soft cedar and sandalwood spice sleek tannins and the energising mineral lick of wet rocks that is so characteristic of wines both red and white from the Douro's schist soils. […] It goes very well with duck and lamb as well as dishes with aubergines black olives herbs anchovies and chorizo. It would also be good with pork (chops pulled or roast) and would be a welcome guest at any barbecue. While it's pretty irresistible now in cellar conditions you could age it confidently for another six or seven years.” – Joanna Simon

They say that rules are meant to be broken and this wine is testament to that.

Quinta do Noval is a world-famous Port house that has been in business since 1715. Their Ports are structured and robust perfect for those who like their postprandial snifter to have a bit more oomph. But here they’ve delivered a break from the norm – an elegant red wine using a controversial blend of grapes…

The inclusion of Syrah means that Cedro do Noval gets declassified from the Douro Denominação de Origem Controlada (DOC) into Vinho Regional Duriense much like the Super Tuscans were when they started exploring international grape varieties. But it was oh so worth it. This blend of Touriga Nacional Syrah Touriga Franca Tinta Cão and Donzelhino Tinto is a silky-smooth rhapsody of juicy plums ripe berries Terry’s Chocolate Orange and smoky oak. And for a food matching tip we recommend getting the roasting tin out for this one.

Named after the monumental cedar tree that dominates the terrace at Quinta do Noval Cedro do Noval also looks set to dominate the landscape of Douro wine for many years to come.
