Quinta Do Noval Nacional 2021

75cl

The Nacional parcel is a small area at the heart of the Quinta do Noval vineyard where the vines are Portuguese vines growing in Portuguese soil with no foreign root stock, and are therefore attached to the soil of the Nation. This great wine is a source of pride to the people of Portugal, and at its best the finest expression of the extraordinary terroir of Quinta do Noval. Initially rich and uninhibited on the nose, it reveals fragrant fruit and pleasant florals, a rare expression for this wine at this stage, as it opens in the glass; very dense on the palate, displaying delicious plum and berry flavors, underpinned by layers of silky tannins and a hint of licorice, culminating in a smooth, long, slightly spicy, floral aftertaste. This wine exhibits remarkable elegance and purity.
