Tasting Notes

Richard Mayson 19/20
'No percentages here but a blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinto Cão and Sousão, picked over a long period from 5th September to 13th October: lovely deep, dark colour; dense, ripe, bold fruit (a touch hot country) on the nose; lovely super-ripe blackberry / cassis fruit initially, wonderful freshness, vitality and verve, backed by broad, ripe tannins and a long powerful finish. This has it all! 1600 cases in total, representing 7% of Noval's production.'

Neal Martin 95/100
The 2018 Quinta do Noval is exuberant and calls out for attention on the nose: black plums, sage, cloves and potent scents of fireside hearth. Lovely definition here and very focused. The palate is medium-bodied with finely chiseled tannins, smooth and disarmingly harmonious. It fans out with confidence and delivers Oriental spices, hoisin, tobacco and black pepper on the very persistent finish. This is a superb Quinta do Noval. Vinous.com June 2020

Vineyard Information

Quinta do Noval is situated in the heart of the Douro, with vineyards in the valleys of both the Pinhão and the Roncão, tributaries of the Douro river. Great wines have been produced here since 1715 when the vineyard was first mentioned in the land registries, but Noval's name was made with the 1931 declaration, which established the reputation of both the Quinta do Noval and the Quinta do Noval Nacional Vintage Ports. Quinta do Noval Vinhos is unusual among traditional shippers in being based in the Douro, and also in that its two greatest Ports, Quinta do Noval and Quinta do Noval Nacional, are always Single Quinta wines.
