Winemaking Notes: This elegant and balanced LBV is the result of the artful blending of six prestigious old vine parcels (60 to 110-years-old) which are manually harvested, vinified, and aged separately. In a return to ancient techniques to help with the extraction of color, structure, and flavor, the grapes are destemmed and 100% foot-trodden in granite lagares. During the fermentation and maceration, there is a re-introduction of layers of stems, which yields a wine that is drier and higher in natural acidity. The wine is then bottled unfiltered after 4 years of aging in stainless steel and 150-year-old seasoned chestnut vats.

Tasting Notes: Utilizing the wisdom of traditional techniques, this Late Bottled Vintage (LBV) port has the tannin structure of a vintage port. There is not another LBV on the market that comes close to the quality of Noble & Murat LBV. The intense blackberry and raspberry flavors and lively acidity in this LBV allows it to pair with savory foods like rare duck breast and duck confit, roasted pork loin with fig compote and turkey with cranberry, aged cheeses (especially blue cheese) and charcuterie.
