Quinta Do Noval Nacional 2000

75cl / 19.5%

“A very fruity aroma leads to concentrated flavors of raspberry, iron, fig, dark plum, slate and smoke.

Refined and unctuous, with a deep well of molten chocolate. Long finish.”

A small area at the heart of the Quinta do Noval vineyard planted with ungrafted vines and untouched by phylloxera. The word “Nacional” refers to the fact that the vines are Portuguese vines growing in Portuguese soil with no foreign root stock, and are therefore “attached to the soil of the Nation”.

This great wine is a source of pride to the people of Portugal, and at its best the finest expression of the extraordinary terroir of Quinta do Noval. The Nacional is a unique and extraordinary phenomenon. It does not necessarily follow the same rhythm as the rest of the Quinta do Noval. In some years a great Nacional is produced when Noval does not even declare the Quinta do Noval Vintage. In others, Quinta do Noval makes a great Vintage Port, and the Nacional does not perform.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Deep red with an ebony sheen
Aroma: Concentrated black fruit and rich berry aromas and just a lift of violet and sweet plum skins.
Palate: Powerful elegant plenitude. Ripe complete and fine with complex fruit. A true expression of Nacional terroir. Just beginning to open up, but probably has a century of development before it. Long ageing potential (+30yrs)
Grape Varieties: Touriga Francesa, Tinto Cão, Touriga Nacional, Sousão and Tinta Roriz.
Aging: 18 months in wooden barrels in the air-conditioned cellars of the Quinta, at the demarcated region of the Douro Valley before bottling.
Awards: 97pts – Wine Spectator; 92pts – Wine Advocate-Parker

History of Quinta do Noval

One of the oldest port houses, Quinta do Noval is also arguably the greatest. It is unique among top port houses in that most of the ports are made from estate-grown fruit and, notably, all of the vintage Noval wines are from the single Quinta do Noval vineyard. In addition, it is difficult to elaborate on Quinta do Noval without mentioning Nacional, the legendary port made from a 6 acre parcel of ungrafted vines. When declared, only 200-300 cases of Nacional will be made, and instantly become the most sought after port in the world. Many vintages of Nacional are considered as the finest ports, and some of the finest wines, ever made.

Noval is mentioned in land registries going back to 1715, and has been sold just twice in that time, once in the late 19th century, and to its present owners in 1993. Noval has a reputation for being an innovative, independent producer and a pioneer in many aspects in winemaking. In the 1920s, Noval was the first to introduce stencilled bottles and pioneered the concept of Old Tawnies with an indication of age. In 1958, Noval was the first to introduce a late-bottled vintage (LBV).
