Noble & Murat Vintage Port
<< PREVIOUS WINE NEXT WINE >>
Antonio Taveira’s family breathes new life into the illustrious Noble & Murat brand whose tradition as a port house started over a century and half ago in 1831. The family has a long history of precision hand-harvesting, distinguished sourcing and methodical vinification. For decades they have provided grapes for Taylor’s, Croft, Sandeman’s among others, but now they have decided to keep the best grapes for their own wines.

Vinification and ageing
Traditional foot trodding in lagares where bunches are destemmed, but fermentation occurs adding back stems in layers. Fermentation is arrested with Spanish Moscato based grape spirit, which lends elegance. The wine is aged two to three years in 150 year-old seasoned chestnut vats, then rests in stainless steel before bottling.
