Quinta do Noval Nacional Vintage 1997
Quinta do Noval is a much-venerated name in the Douro Valley and Nacional is undoubtedly one of the most legendary fortified wines in the world. It is produced from a small area at the heart of the Quinta do Noval vineyard planted with ungrafted vines that have remained untouched by Phylloxera and has an average production of between 250 and 275 cases. 1997 was the follow-up to the sublime 1994 and somewhat incredibly managed to ascend to even greater heights. A benchmark Nacional that will bring several decades of drinking pleasure.
