About the producer

Lying in the heart of the Douro Valley in Northern Portugal, Quinta do Noval has been producing some of the world’s most highly sought after Vintage Ports since 1715. Winemaker Christian Seely has dreamt for years of making top quality unfortified red wines, which express the unique terroir of Noval’s steep sloping vineyards. He has finally achieved his dream, one of which is the excellent Cedro do Noval.



Jancis Robinson (Purple Pages jancisrobinson.com):

The quality of the fruit is so immediately apparent with Noval – fresh and ripe, with none of the overcooked ‘Douro bake’ that can make some ports rather dead. A masterclass in freshness and nuance in a big, full-bodied structure. For LBV, this is difficult to beat. (RH) Points: 17. Date Tasted: 09/05/2018

Robert Parker Wine Advocate (robertparker.com):

The 2012 Unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage Port is another fine Noval LBV, traditionally styled and bottled in June 2017 with a long cork. Noval is one of the region's finest and most consistent producers of traditional LBVs, wines that become more expressive and can develop with age. This is a little on the lighter side—that's the vintage, perhaps—but still respectably concentrated. It has fine, expressive fruit and the elegant styling for which Noval is known. This should drink well on release and hold well for a couple of decades (yes, traditional LBVs age well and develop). It will be released sometime in late 2017. (Mark Squires) Points: 91.
