Blended especially for BBR and matured in oak for 20 years, the sweetness in this fine mellow Port is beautifully balanced by the richness of the fruit and the maturity from the wood; rich and nutty, it would be heavenly with chocolate-based desserts.

The ownership of AXA, contrary to initial fears, has helped to return Noval to the very top echelons of Port production. The usual ingredients of inspired leadership (courtesy of Christian Seely), generous investment and very fine raw materials have all played their part. Beyond the celebrated single vineyard, and its legendary Noval Nacional ( the 1931 is especially good I gather), the Bodega is particularly praised for its Late Bottled Vintage and Aged Tawny wines, both, not entirely coincidentally, bottled for Berry Bros under our own label.
