Uncorking Tradition: A Dive into Quinta do Noval Black Reserve Port

For centuries, Port wine has graced tables, offering a taste of Portugal's rich viticulture. But for those seeking a contemporary twist on this classic, Quinta do Noval Black Reserve Port emerges as a captivating option. Produced by the illustrious Quinta do Noval, renowned for its exceptional Ports, this unique expression challenges the traditional while staying true to its heritage.

A Modern Port Experience

Unlike its aged counterparts, Quinta do Noval Black Reserve throws out the rulebook. Crafted with meticulously selected grapes, it undergoes a brief ageing process (2-3 years) in a combination of wooden vats and stainless steel tanks. This technique prioritises freshness, resulting in a vibrant and youthful Port bursting with personality.

Tasting Profile: A Symphony of Fruit and Spice

Pour a glass of Quinta do Noval Black Reserve Port and be greeted by a deep, almost inky ruby red colour. As you swirl the glass, enticing aromas unfurl, revealing a delightful interplay of dark fruits. Imagine a basket overflowing with blackberries, black cherries, and juicy plums. These are intertwined with subtle hints of cocoa, sweet spice, and a touch of tobacco, adding intriguing layers of complexity.

The first sip is a revelation. The palate is enveloped by a burst of concentrated fruit flavours, mirroring the aromas. Yet, it's not overwhelmingly sweet. A delightful dryness emerges, balancing the fruit beautifully and leaving a refreshing finish. The moderate tannins provide a gentle structure, ensuring a smooth and lingering aftertaste.

Food Pairings to Elevate Your Experience

Quinta do Noval Black Reserve Port's versatility makes it a true gem for food pairings. Here are some delectable options to tantalise your taste buds:

  • Cheeseboard Perfection:  Indulge in a cheeseboard featuring a selection of contrasting textures and flavours. Creamy blue cheeses like Stilton or Gorgonzola create a delightful harmony with the Port's sweetness and fruitiness. Mature Cheddar offers a sharp counterpoint, while a nutty Gruyère adds another dimension of complexity. Don't forget to include some grapes – their sweet and juicy character complements the Port beautifully.
  • Chocolate Bliss:  For pure indulgence, pair Quinta do Noval Black Reserve Port with dark chocolate. Aim for a cocoa content of 70% or higher to ensure the chocolate can stand up to the Port's intensity. The rich bitterness of dark chocolate creates a decadent contrast with the Port's fruitiness, resulting in an unforgettable taste sensation.
  • Fruity Desserts: Don't shy away from pairing this Port with desserts. Fruit tarts or crumbles featuring berries or plums make excellent companions. The Port's fruit notes will echo those in the dessert, while its slight dryness cuts through the sweetness, creating a beautifully balanced experience.

Beyond the Classics: Cocktails with a Twist

Quinta do Noval Black Reserve Port's vibrancy extends to the realm of cocktails. Here are a couple of exciting options to explore:

  • The Black Manhattan:  Give the classic Manhattan a modern twist by using Quinta do Noval Black Reserve Port in place of rye whiskey. Combine 50ml of the Port with 25ml of sweet vermouth and a dash of bitters. Stir well with ice and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry for a touch of elegance.
  • Black Berry Royale: Muddle a handful of blackberries in a shaker. Add 50ml of Quinta do Noval Black Reserve Port, 25ml of lemon juice, and a spoonful of sugar. Shake well with ice and strain into a champagne flute. Top with chilled Champagne for a touch of fizz and a delightful interplay of flavours.
