Dear Wine Lover,
Only for Port lovers, the Quinta do Noval Porto Vintage 2015 has just been delivered in our cellars! Rated with 95 points by both James Suckling and Wine Spectator this is another great effort for the best Port producer in the world!
Quinta do Novals not only one of the oldest port houses but it is by far the greatest and the maker of the most famous and sought after vintage ports. Created in 1715, this 145 hectares estate belonged to the Rebella Valenta family who received it from the hands of the Marquês de Pombal, Portugals most powerful Prime Minister and responsible for one of the worlds oldest established appellation (Douro DOC), in 1756. Nowadays, it belongs to the AXA Millésimes group, which also owns Château Pichon-Longueville Baron and Château Suduiraut, among many others. Porto vintage is only produced in great years, usually only 3 or 4 per decade, making this wine an absolute rarity.
This is the best moment to take advantage and secure yourself some bottles of this amazing Port!

Wine Spectator 95 points: This is very polished in feel, with a long, caressing, fine-grained structure that allows plum eau-de-vie, boysenberry puree and blackberry cobbler notes to play out at their leisure. Light anise and ganache hints accent the finish while the fruit blazes through.
James Suckling 95 points: Exquisite aromas of blackberry, stone, violet and blueberry. Lead pencil too. Ink. Full body, chewy and linear with super polished yet intense tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Classic Noval character through a direct punch to the palate. This needs at least until 2022to open but already excellent.
