Named after the emblematic cedar tree that dominates Quinta do Noval’s terrace, Cedro is an authentic expression of the Douro. Principally made up of Portuguese varieties, it also contains Syrah, which rounds out the fruit and gives the wine tremendous charm and accessibility.
The harvest took place from 5 September to 13 October in good weather conditions, with high temperatures and no rain. It produced high quality wines with good levels of sugar, acidity and phenolic compounds.
Cedro do Noval 2018 presents a dense red colour. Fruity and spicy aromas on the nose, followed by chewy flavours of chocolate and dark plum. The palate reveals a firm acidity and finishes with beautiful fruit and slight smokeness.
