In a small area at the heart of the Quinta do Noval estate is a vineyard planted with ungrafted vines and untouched by the blight that is 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 wine is a great source of pride to the people of Portugal, and at its best is the finest expression of the extraordinary terrior of Quinta do Noval. The vineyard is only 4.6 acres in size and produced only 200 cases in a year which was “not generally declared”, as such, Noval held the vintage back in the cellar and released it in 2014. Some have called it the “Secret Vintage”. A very exclusive and collectable vintage port of superior quality. Super concentrated, extravagant and hedonistic. An abundant complexity with notes of crushed flowers, camphor, clove, nutmeg, anise, ripe and dried black fruits with a backbone of wonderfully fresh acidity. Delicious.
