The first back to back Vintage port general declaration in a long time (since the 1870's).
Taylor's, Dow, Croft, Fonseca and Quinta do Noval have all declared.
These are fantastic Vintage Ports which have the power, depth and concentration to be enjoyed for many years and perhaps many generations!
We thoroughly recommend these for any cellar!
Christian Seely, winemaker at Noval also believes the 2017s to be exceptional:
“I consider these wines to be among the best that I have known during my time at Quinta do Noval. The decision to declare them was a very easy one. As is well known, at Quinta do Noval, we do not hesitate to make small declarations of our Vintage Ports even in years which are not being generally declared, provided that the quality is excellent. But the 2017 is clearly an exceptional year which I believe will be remembered as one of the historic Vintage Port declarations of Quinta do Noval.”
