Quinta do Noval Vintage Port is characterized by its purity of fruit and a fine and delicate quality that is typical of the wines of the property in general but which finds its most remarkable and enduring expression in the Vintage Ports. Equilibrium, harmony, finesse and elegance characterize our great Vintage Ports, which are declared only in great years (3 or 4 years in a decade) and only when the wines come up to Noval's exacting standards.

Cellar Selection. Noval has often in the past released a Vintage Port in years when other producers hold back. And, as in the past, the release is justified. For this is an impressive, dense and seriously age worthy Port. While it has plenty of perfumed jammy red fruits and balanced acidity, it is the dark tannic character that will sustain this wine for decades. It could be drunk now for its fruit, although that would be a shame. Better to wait until 2030 and longer.

Powerful and rich, with deep flavors of crushed red plum, dark cherry and dried raspberry, featuring a shading of graphite and smoke. Presents luscious spicy details on the finish. Drink now through 2045. 250 cases imported.
