Port Vintage 1997 - Quinta do Noval

Tasting notes

"The 1997 vintage port is the greatest Quinta do Noval I have ever tasted. The wine of the vintage, this black/purple-colored port boasts fabulous aromatics (espresso, blackberries, licorice, tar, and flowers), followed by massive concentration, full body, and levels of depth and richness. Gorgeously sweet, stunningly concentrated and full-bodied, this profound vintage port should be legendary. Quinta do Noval's production normally approaches 4,000 cases, but in 1997, only 1200 cases were produced, so it will be extremely limited in availability. (...)"

INFORMATIONS ABOUT THE ESTATE

Quinta do Noval is unusual among the great traditional Port houses in that it emphasizes the importance of the vineyard.  It is significant that the company is named after its vineyard, that it is entirely based on the Douro Valley, and that its principal Vintage Ports, Quinta do Noval Nacional and Quinta do Noval, are both single-vineyard wines. The aim is to produce classic Vintage Ports that are harmonious and elegant expressions of Quinta do Noval’s terroir.  Strict selection in the vineyard, low yields, and strict selection again in the tasting room result in a small production.”
