Quinta do Noval

This historic estate is in the Pinhão valley, just to the north of the town itself. It is owned by Axa Millésimes whose interests also include Châteaux Pichon Baron, Pibran, Petit-Village, Suduiraut in Bordeaux, Domaine de L'Arlot in Nuits St Georges, and Disznókö in Hungary's Tokaji region and has benefited both from its investment and from the management skills of Christian Seely, who oversees all the properties.

Vintage Ports are declared regularly, when the conditions and quality merit it, usually in small volumes, not least for those from the legendary, ungrafted, and as yet phylloxera-free 4.5 acre Nacional vineyard. There are 143 hectares planted across three parcels, most of which are in the Pinhão valley, but their multitude of aspects allows the winemaking team plenty of good material to work with. A range of dry red wines is also produced, including a syrah blend and a single-varietal syrah.

Pure, vibrant, with great definition and good alcohol integration. Although uncompromisingly sweet, there's enough spicy energy (clove, aniseed, nutmeg), acidity and tannic grip to carry the luscious plum, black cherry an blackberry fruit. Long and velvety finish with lingering spiced fruit.
