Quinta do Noval Port


One of the oldest port houses, Quinta do Noval is also arguably the greatest. It is unique among top port houses in that most of the ports are made from estate-grown fruit and, notably, all of the vintage Noval wines are from the single Quinta do Noval vineyard. In addition, it is difficult to elaborate on Quinta do Noval without mentioning Nacional, the legendary port made from a 6 acre parcel of ungrafted vines. When declared, only 200-300 cases of Nacional will be made, and instantly become the most sought after port in the world. Many vintages of Nacional are considered as the finest ports, and some of the finest wines, ever made.

Noval is mentioned in land registries going back to 1715, and has been sold just twice in that time, once in the late 19th century, and to its present owners in 1993. Noval has, however, a reputation for being an innovative, independent producer. Noval’s focus on its vineyard and estate ports distinguishes it.

Quinta do Noval Port, 1991

Vintage Port

*** 90-92 Points - Wine Journal ***

"paque deep black colour. The nose is sweet and raisiny, quite fragrant and perfumed. The palate is spicy, peppery, quite "bullish" in a way. The Niepport shows more restraint and balance. Slightly dry on the finish - bit this is still an excellent port that should last another decade at least. Drink now-2020. Tasted June 2004." Neil Martin Wine Journal

Quinta do Noval Port, 1970

Vintage Port (Berry Bros label)

The 1970 Quinta do Noval remains a young, unevolved Port, graceful, youthful, and complex. The huge nose of liquorice, smoke, jammy black-cherry and cassis fruit is followed by a wine of seamless components, all super-packed with gorgeously pure fruit, yet the wine is not heavy or overbearing. There is a real sense of elegance to this Quinta do Noval.

This Port has reached full maturity and remain there until 2020+

Quinta do Noval Port, 1963

Vintage Port (low shoulder - excluded from guarantee)

From the legendary 1963 vintage, the Quinta do Noval exhibits power, dimension and real character. After 50 years the Ports never fail to impress.

The 1963 Quinta do Noval has a light garnet hue with degradated deep brick rim. The nose has scents of cherry, spice, iron rust and wild strawberry.
The palate is medium-bodied, quite pretty, with damson, cherries and a touch of sloes. Quite cohesive. The finish is pleasantly harmonious with good vigour. This is a lovely, elegant mature port.
