NV 10 Year Old Tawny, Quinta do Noval, Port, Portugal

Somm Picks


Noval's 10 Year Old Tawny Port is tawny in colour and benefits from complex aromas of dried fruits and nuts with delicious young fruit blending into notes of dry fruits and spicy aromas. This port is smooth and rich on the palate with a long finish.


Very similar fox-red tawny to the Graham's 10 year old tawny though perhaps slightly more concentrated colour. Grapes were apparently foot-trodden in the traditional way. More fiery than the super-smooth Graham's with lots of pungency, some fine tannin and a treacly note. This wine will probably last longer in an opened bottle than the Graham's and it's slightly less sweet. This would be great with cheese and with Christmas pudding. Still quite chewy actually. 17 Points Jancis Robinson

A fresh, vibrant style, showing cherry and red currant pâte de fruit notes, with blood orange and rooibos tea flavors. Light cinnamon and mineral nuances add to the streamlined finish. 92 Points James Molesworth


This port will pair supremely well with the local goat's cheese, dark chocolate truffles and of course, Stilton.


The grapes were trodden by foot and fermented in the traditional lagares of the Quinta, to obtain the best extraction.

Noval Tawny 10 years is a blend of old Ports from different vintages, matured in oak casks and with an average age of 10 years.


A bodega producing Port since 1715. António José da Silva, a port shipper from Porto, acquired Quinta do Noval in 1894, after its devastation by phylloxera. He restored the property by replanting the vines.

Luiz Vasconcelos Porto, his son-in-law, was the author of a vast programme of innovations. He transformed many of the narrow older terraces into broader terraces. This permitted a more efficient use of the land and a better exposition to the sun.

Quinta do Noval made its name with the declaration of the 1931 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port, and the 1931 Quinta do Noval Nacional Vintage Port. Because of the global depression and the enormous production and shipment of the 1927 Vintage, most shippers did not declare the 1931. This success established Quinta do Noval among the great names of Vintage Port in the English and American markets, a leading position in terms of reputation which is maintained today.

Since 1993, Quinta do Noval is part of the international viticultural group of AXA Millésimes.

A new bottling line and warehouse was completed in 1997 in Alijo, near Pinhão. This project made Quinta do Noval the first of the traditional Port shippers to centralise all its activities in the Douro Valley.

In the 90's, around a hundred hectares of the domaine have been replanted, adapting pruning methods to suit each parcel. Today, we have high quality grapes which on one hand assure the excellence of Quinta do Noval Ports and on the other hand the production of Douro wines since the 2004 vintage.
