Winemaker Notes

Quinta do Noval Vintage Port is only declared when various factors combine to make an exceptional year. Intensely powerful and concentrated, these wines are adapted to age in bottle, developing overs years and releasing a complex variety of flavours.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 96
Wine Spectator
D 96
Decanter
Earned its reputation as ‘backward from the off’ when last tasted in December 2018, but this celebrated vintage of Noval (a general declaration) is now in revelatory mode. Expressive, elegant even, with perfumed, sweet, juicy red berry and plum, orange blossom, liquorice, gingerbread spice and dark chocolate. Builds intensity, finishing very long, with mouthcoating, fine, mineral tannins and inky back palate resonance. Coming very much into its stride.

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, but there are numerous other areas in which it has been a pioneer:

  • 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).

The astonishing terraced vineyards of Noval, perched above the Douro and Pinhao rivers, are an infertile schist, and not soil as much as sheer rock. The elevation of the vineyards goes from just above river level to 1,200 feet, with density at about 2,000 vines per acre, and vines producing on average 30-35 hectoliters per hectare. The tremendous rewards of the work done at the estate over the last fifteen years are visible across the range of Noval ports, and have placed Noval a step ahead of everyone in the Douro.
