Quinta do Noval

750ML

In 1993 AXA insurance group purchased Quinta do Noval, making the 1994 vintage their first opportunity to showcase why they operate top quality wineries. It was a triumph! Whilst production was insanely limited, the port produced from the 1994 vintage was one of the best for a long while at Noval. This is an exceptional gift for a port connoisseur.

    The 1994 Vintage Port may be the finest regular vintage port I have tasted from this house in decades. Sadly, the production was absurdly small (approximately 800 cases) as the new owners, France's AXA, want to make a qualitative statement - immediately. Opaque ruby/purple-colored, with fabulous purity and richness, full body, moderate sweetness, layers of jammy fruit, and well-integrated alcohol. There is some tannin in the finish, but this is a large-scaled, authoritatively flavored as well as elegant example of port that needs cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2035.
