About this video

Christian Seely, managing director of Quinta do Noval for the past 27 years, discusses the Noval Black. Although the house is known for their legendary vintage ports, this is a unique port that showcases the potential of a young and fresh port. Purity and freshness without having to decant, simply pull the cork!

    The style of Noval BLACK is entirely about emphasizing the quality of this fruit, through use of estate fruit, gentle handling (including foot treading), and vinification aiming for transparency.  You could say it is the most wine-like of ruby reserve ports, and that is the secret to its flexibility, in cocktails, chilled, and even on ice.

    One of the oldest port houses, Quinta do Noval is also arguably the greatest. It is unique among top port houses in that most of the ports are made from estate-grown fruit and, notably, all of the vintage Noval wines are from the single Quinta do Noval vineyard.
