The Oddbins Take

Drinking port can be like opening up those tradional, wooden russian dolls. As you open each doll you reveal another one, another style of port. The first one is like trying basic ruby port-ok not bad, then the next you discover LBV port- which is much better. After some generous soul gives you a glass of single vintage port-it's brilliant and you think you have hit the last doll. But then you discover there is one more. The last one. A fine tawny port. Silky butterscotch, dried fruits and nutty flavours- completely new flavours compared to the previous ones. You really can't get any further than that.

Quinta do Noval's name first appears on land records as early as 1715. Noval is not only one of the most recognized Port shippers but is also unique because it's named after its best Quinta (vineyard). Also, its emphasis is on the importance of the vineyard sets it apart from other producers. This estate is entirely based in the Douro and it's top vintage ports are sourced from single vineyards; Quinta do Noval Nacional and Quinta do Noval. In keeping with Noval's vineyard focus, the company's chief winemaker Christian Seely aims for the wines to invoke their location and source.
