Quinta do Noval Nacional

Description and Reviews:
86/100 Wine Spectator
90/100 Wine Doctor

Noval is particularly famous for its Nacional, a Port produced in some years only from a 2 hectare parcel at the heart of the Noval vineyard where ungrafted vines survive. This is remarkable, because phylloxera, the root munching aphid that necessitates grafting vines onto resistant American rootstock, is endemic in the Douro

"This a gloriously wild, rich, sensual port with a rich spicy nose and flavour and a sweet, full glorious length and aftertaste" Drink now - 2033. M Broadbent *****

"Pale cherry colour. Evolved spicy, earthy nose with dusty, herby notes. The palate has freshness and a hint of mint. More focus than the vintage Port with some nice spicy, earthy complexity. Tawny-ish in style. 90/100" Wine Doctor. com
