Tasting Note:

Quinta do Noval is a single estate located in the heart of the Douro valley with 145HA under vine. The estate has a plethora of different altitudes, expositions and varietal make-up, terroirs from which they select the finest grapes to go in to their flagship Vintage Port. In 2018 just 1,600 cases have been produced, which equates to less than 7% of the total production. Christian Seely is rightly pleased with this supple, ripe and juicy Vintage Port, saying that “the grapes all ripened in perfect conditions. We could harvest a la carte and find the perfect blend.” A softer, more sumptuous Port than we’ve seen for a few years, the ‘18 is a wine with very attractive, silky, ripe, perfumed and exotic dark fruit, arriving after the denser, more classically-styled 2017. This is verily a drinkers Port that is already so charming and fruit-forward that it will be irresistible in just a few years’ time. Predominantly Touriga Nacional and Touriga Francesca (formerly known as Franca) with some Tinta Cao and Souson making up the final blend.
