Quinta do Noval

About Quinta do Noval

Based in the Douro Valley, Quinta do Noval is amongst the most beloved Port houses in operation today, Quinta do Noval holds a special place in the hearts of oenophiles the world over thanks to their incredibly refined style of vintage Port.

Viniculture

Almost defiant in its approach to crafting exceptional Port, Quinta do Noval often does things a little differently from its peers. If they believe that they have wines of the quality and personality to join the ranks of their past vintage Ports, they will bottle it and declare it. They will do this even if it means, as is often the case, bottling only a few hundred cases, representing a tiny percentage of the potential total production of the Quinta. 

Quinta do Noval’s Vintage ports celebrate consistent quality where all ports come from one vineyard. Whilst the 1931 Quinta do Noval Nacional Vintage Port was one of the most successful of the 20th century, the Noval Black marks a revolutionary change in the drinking port.

Quinta do Noval 2017 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (97)

The straight 2017 Vintage Port is stunning stuff. It packs serious power and richness while staying beautifully polished and, dare I say, elegant. Notes of crème de cassis and liquid blackberries define the attack, but it offers an incredibly layered, nuanced, complex style in its notes of herbes de Provence, violets, spicy wood, licorice, and Asian spice aromas and flavors. While it’s no doubt a full-bodied Port, it stands out just as much for its incredible polish, balance, and purity. This a brilliant effort is more approachable than the Nacional bottling yet is nevertheless going to evolve for 50-60 years or more on its flawless balance.

Tight and linear vintage Port with ripe berries, almonds, chocolate and hints of spices. Medium to full body, racy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Very beautiful now.

Wine Advocate (100)

The 2017 Vintage Port Nacional is a field blend, mostly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Sousão and Tinta Roriz, aged for 18 months in old wood. It comes in at 99 grams of residual sugar and was bottled about a month before this tasting after 18 months in wooden vats. In 2016, I might've made an argument that the regular Noval was better. In this vintage, this seems to be a clear choice, granting that Ports change constantly in their youth. Its siblings at all levels in the last few vintages are very fine, but this is an indisputable benchmark that seems to better them all. Rich and vibrant, this has plenty of stuffing and flavor, more than the regular Noval. Then, it adds layer after layer of power. A couple of hours of air makes both the flavors and tannins more intense. It is simply gripping—yet also remarkably fresh. It's a great Noval, and one of the shortlist candidates for "Wine of the Vintage." There were 200 cases produced.
