CHACTERISTICS OF THIS VINTAGE

The wettest winter followed by the hottest summer. This off-the-charts weather pattern resulted in high levels of sugar and acidity. In other words, the ideal combination for perfect balance. As a result, our Vintage stands out for its structure, deep colour and complexity of aromas.

“Powerful elegant plenitude. Ripe complete and fine. Many layered fruit. Deep complex and long. Real expression of Nacional terroir. Just beginning to open up, but probably has a century of development before it.”
António Agrellos, Technical Director –May 2013

GRAPE VARIETIES

It is produced using several grape varieties and not just from Touriga Nacional, as it name might suggest. These varieties are some of the noblest to be found in the Douro valley: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão and Sousão.

 

WHERE THE GRAPES COME FROM
All the grapes come from the Nacional plot in the Quinta do Noval vineyard. 


VINIFICATION 

The wine is made in the same way as all the other grapes from the Quinta do Noval vineyard. Grapes are trodden by foot to obtain the must, then during fermentation are pressed in lagares, the traditional stone vats from the Quinta.
