Quinta do Noval 2012 Vintage Port

Quinta do Noval is one of the most famous port wine houses. Nowadays, it is owned by French insurance company AXA, which also owns several prestige châteaux in Bordeaux. Recently Quinta do Noval declared a new vintage, namely 2012. This year was not an obvious vintage for all port wine houses. But the director of Noval, Christian Seely, writes on his blog that he is “very happy with the result and convinced that the 2012 will hold a worthy place in the line-up of great recent declarations such as 2011, 2008 and 2007”.

A vintage port is declared about 1 ½ years after the harvest if the port wine house believes that the year has been of sufficient intensity and quality. The wine is bottled after two years in barrels and then aged in the bottle. For many years, if you want.
