Quinta do Noval Nacional 1975
MWH Wines: The Quinta do Noval Nacional 1975 typifies this unique Vintage Port. Produced from a single vineyard which is planted with ancient, ungrafted vines (most vines are planted on inferior American rootstocks to protect them from the devastating phylloxera beetle) Quinta do Noval Nacional is as rare as it is exquisite.
The Quinta do Noval Nacional 1975 is full and rounded and massive - certainly in terms of the vintage - and has the characteristic Nacional' mineral complexity, dense, concentrated fruit and unctuous, long and precise finish. It's utterly compelling and a Vintage Port masterpiece.
