Quinta do Noval

Quinta do Noval Vintage Port is produced exclusively from selected plots at the Quinta, and only declared in exceptional years. Touriga Nacional, Tinta Cao, Touriga Francesca, Tinta Roriz and Sousao are the grape varieties, all trodden by foot in the lagares at Quinta do Noval. The wine is aged around 20 months in old oak barrels of 640 liters or larger. Intensely powerful and concentrated, this port is perfectly adapted to age in bottle, and has the capacity to mature gracefully over decades.

Wine Enthusiast

A powerful, concentrated wine, full of dark tannins, ripe fruit and rich texture. This is a wine based on a solid structure-very firm in character while still allowing the gorgeous fruits to express themselves. It's obviously destined for long-term aging.

Score: 96. —Roger Voss, November 01, 2013.

Wine Advocate

The 2011 Quinta do Noval has wonderful precision on the nose with blackberry, cassis, intriguing flinty notes and a whiff of smoke. It might not possess the power of the Nacional but it has freshness to spare. That comes through on the beautifully composed palate, which is underpinned by fine tannins that lend it a silky smooth mouthfeel. There is real intensity here, but it is very controlled with superb minerality on the finish. Excellent. Tasted May 2013.

Score: 94-96. —Neal Martin, May 2013.
