O Produtor, tasting note published in May 26th 2021

A small plot with free-standing vines, in the heart of the vineyard of Quinta do Noval, untouched by phylloxera. The word 'National' refers to the fact that these vines are Portuguese vines growing in Portuguese soil, without American rootstock, and therefore directly 'rooted in the soil of the nation'. This great wine is a source of pride for all Portuguese and when at its best is the highest expression of Quinta do Noval's extraordinary terroir. National Vintage is a unique and extraordinary phenomenon. It does not necessarily follow the same pace as the rest of Quinta do Noval. There are years when a great Nacional is produced without Noval declaring a Quinta do Noval Vintage. There are other years when Quinta do Noval declares a great Vintage but does not declare a Nacional. And then there are years when both the Nacional and the other vineyards of the Quinta produce extraordinary but totally distinct Vintage Ports.

Quinta do Noval

The grapes were placed in a small traditional lagar in the Quinta and foot treading was carried out by a group of 6 men for 3 hours. Fermentation took place under controlled temperatures between 25º and 28ºC. The Vintage Nacional was aged for 18 months in old casks before bottling in the air-conditioned warehouses of the Quinta in the Douro Valley Demarcated Region.

Quinta do Noval

Our Vintage Port comes from our vineyard. Our greatest wine, the Quinta do Noval Vintage Nacional Port, from a small parcel at the heart of that vineyard. All our activity is based at our Quinta, in the Douro Valley. Quinta do Noval is the only historic Port wine shipper to bear the name of its Quinta. The identity of Quinta do Noval is rooted in its terroir.

The consistency of style of the Vintage Ports of Quinta do Noval through the decades is one of the particularities of Quinta do Noval in the world of Port. Consistency quite simply because our Vintage Ports come from one single vineyard, a specific and magical place. When you come to know Quinta do Noval, its old and its young Vintages, you will be able to recognize its future Vintages.

The place is so beautiful, so remarkable, that the idea of being part of something greater than us, that existed before us, and will exist after us, is ever present. The notion of continuity is key: our obligation to the past, our responsibility for the vineyard and its wines today, and our obligations to the future generations who will tend the vineyard and make wine there as we do today.
