      Winemaker Notes

      Silval is a particularly open and accessible style of Vintage Port, with the accent on exuberance of fruit. Made for lovers of Vintage Port who do not want to wait too long, it can be enjoyed when young and very fruity. This is a serious Vintage Port which will also repay years of cellar aging.

      Vibrant, foresty blackberry flavors sustain this wine, their sleek density and green spice a match for the schist-driven tannin. Those tannins are powerful, reading as mineral from the aroma to the finish, yet they seem to lighten the wine rather than weigh it down. The balance gives an overall impression of gentleness, with nothing pushed, even as the flavors last for more than a minute. Air brings out some raisin and plum pudding flavor, suggesting this is a wine to enjoy in the near- to midterm, perhaps six to 20 years from the vintage.

      WS 90
      Wine Spectator

      This is a wonderfully focused and intense young Vintage Port, with notes of flowers, crushed berries and cherry. Full-bodied and very sweet, with ripe berry and jam flavors. Long and powerful. Best after 2016. 1,000 cases made

      Quinta do Noval
      Although the property of Quinta do Noval first appeared in land registries in 1715, its history as a premium Port producer truly began when it was bought and renovated by the distinguished Port shipper, António José da Silva. His work was continued by his son-in-law, Luiz Vasconcelos Porto, who ran the company for three decades, transforming the old narrow terraces into the wide whitewashed ones seen today, which allowed for better use of space and more exposure to the sun. There were several other innovations which were considered revolutionary in their time, but which have subsequently become traditions:

       Noval was the first to introduce stencilled bottles in the 1920s.

       Noval pioneered the concept of Old Tawnies with an indication of age.

       In 1958, Noval was the first to introduce a late-bottled vintage (LBV).
