Quinta Do Noval / Assumed 1955 Vintage Port

Vintage Port is a specific style of Ruby Port which is made only in exceptional years and from the ripest grapes.  The fermented wine is fortified before being aged for 2 years in massive oak vats which preserve the ripe fruit character.  Upon bottling, the wines continue to age and can reward patient maturation for many decades.

This bottle was consigned alongside 2 bottles of Quinta Do Noval 1955 Vintage Port in similar overall condition.  It is very possible that this bottle is also a 1955 Vintage Port, however without vintage markings we are unable to positively identify it as such.

Currency Estimate

Important: Currency exchange rates are constantly changing; this feature is to be used as a guide price only. All final transactions occur in British Pounds (£).

This bottle is in satisfactory condition: missing labels; wax seal damaged; cork/closure appears secure, no leakage.

The producer of this bottle is identified by markings on the wax seal as all other identifiers - including vintage declaration - are absent.
