Quinta do Noval

quinta-do-noval-vintage-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, 2012

Vintage Port (Case of 6X75cl bottles)

Throughout the upper Douro, a wet spring and summer drought conditions that year reduced grape production overall. However, the mild temperatures through the year enabled the vines to reach excellent maturity. It was decided that the harvest would start one week later than normal at Noval. This was a huge success with the grapes that were picked small but perfectly formed, with outstanding flavour and freshness in the musts.

The result is a Vintage Port which, according to wine-making director Antonio Agrellos: “is a classic example of the Quinta do Noval style and a worthy addition to the recent Quinta do Noval declarations such as 2011, 2008 and 2007”.

Quinta do Noval, 2011

Late Bottled Vintage Port

Quinta do Noval specialize in ports made from grapes they grow themselves – a terroir-driven approach to making a wine for which the norm is to blend grapes grown on different estates. Their unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage Port is exactly that, a wine that shows some of the concentration and fruit flavour of their vintage wine, but has been allowed to mellow in barrels for longer than usual. It was shipped ready to drink, but the lack of filtration makes this a wine that will improve with bottle age

Winemakers notes
"This wine is a remarkable example of the Noval style. Treated exactly like a Vintage Port with only noble grape varieties from the Quinta, trodden by foot and unfiltered.

Quinta do Noval, 2003

Vintage Port

*** 94 Points - eRobert Parker ***

Reviews: "The inky, purple-colored, opaque 2003 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port soars from the glass, revealing dates, black cherries, copious flowers, and plums. Full-bodied, broad, and lush, this top-flight wine is harmonious and exhibits stupendous purity of fruit. Blueberries, cherries, and candied strawberries can be found in its nuanced, lengthy, plum-laced core as well as in its immensely long, dried berry-tinged finish. Drink this beauty between 2020 and 2045+." P Rovani eRobert Parker

Quinta do Noval, 2003

Colheita Port

*** 93 pts Wine Spectator ***

Fresh, powerful and fruity, with red plum, dried cherry and marzipan flavors loaded with lithe acidity. Hazelnut cream and butterscotch notes fill the seductively smoky finish, which shows hints of green olive.

In exceptional years, certain lots of wine with great ageing potential are set aside to spend their lives maturing in casks. At a given stage, we decide to bottle a part of a vintage. The rest is kept in casks where the wine will mature into new expression at a later stage. Thus, one and the same Colheita vintage can be put onto the market on 3 or 4 occasions: after 15 years, 30 years or 40 years of maturing, and in some cases even longer.

Quinta do Noval, 2001

Silval Vintage Port

The Quinta do Noval Silval Vintage Ports today offer wonderful value for money. This eccentric late release (the wine was bottled in 2003) was made entirely from grapes of Quinta do Silval, and selected high grade "A" vineyard in Cima Corgo, in the heart of the Douro Valley.

Note: The 2001 Silval is characterised by a very seductive bouquet, vibrant fruit and silky tannins, making this an unusually attractive and accessible young Vintage Port. It shares with our previous declarations of Silval the characteristics of smoothness, elegance, openness, and readiness to drink while relatively young, and at the same time retaining sufficient structure to age for many more years in bottle.

Quinta do Noval, 1975

Vintage Port

The 1975 Quinta Noval outshines the 1975 vintage.

"The beautiful Quinta do Noval is undoubtedly the most famous port producer, largely because their 1931 and 1927 were to vintage port what the 1947 Cheval Blanc and 1945 Mouton-Rothschild were to the Bordeaux trade - divine, monumental wines of extraordinary depth of flavor... The 1975 has turned out to be charming, fruity and actually better than the 1970 or 1963, which is inexplicable." Robert Parker Buying Guide 2nd Ed 1989.

Quinta do Noval, 1970

New

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, 1957

Late Bottled Vintage Port

A beautiful and extremely rare bottle.

The 1957 Quinta Do Noval LBV was produced by the traditional Port method, with a long, intense maceration during alcoholic fermentation with the aim of extracting tannin, colour and flavour from the skins. This was done both by foot-treading in traditional granite lagars (shallow vats), and by pumping over. Fermentation temperatures and densities were carefully monitored to choose the ideal moment to fortify. The wines remained in the Douro until the spring when they were transported to Vila Nova de Gaia to mature in large oak vats.
