Vintage Ports are declared only in great years (3 or 4 years in a decade) and only when the wines come up to Noval’s exacting standards. All the grapes come from the Quinta do Noval vineyard. Grapes are trodden by foot to obtain the must, then during fermentation macerate to obtain the best possible extraction in the lagares, the traditional stone vats from the Quinta. It is matured for 18 months in wooden vats of various capacities.
Quinta do Noval Vintage 2017 Port wine is characterized by its purity of fruit and a fine and delicate quality that is typical of the wines of the property in general, but finds its most remarkable and lasting expression in Vintage Ports. Balance, harmony, finesse and elegance are the hallmarks of our great Vintage Port wines, which are declared only when they believe that the year has produced a blend, however small, worthy of the Quinta do Noval seal.
