QUINTA DO NOVAL

31 October 2016 News

The December issue of Wine Enthusiast just landed on our desks. In it is a gorgeous photo spread highlighting five of their Top 100 Cellar Selections, including Quinta do Noval’s Vintage 2013 Port! Below is the text of the review.

“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.” 95 Points Wine Enthusiast
