Details
Quinta do Noval's Nacional Vintage Port is one of the most sought after and exclusive ports made.  The fruit comes from a very small plot of old vines within the larger Quinta do Noval estate and only around 200 cases are produced on the rare occaision it is made.  Release price on this is $1100.00  Only 3 bottles available at this price.  It was also Wine Spectator's Top Rated 2019 Vintage Port.

"The 2019 Vintage Port Nacional is a field blend, mostly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cao, Sousao and Tinta Roriz, aged for 18 months in old wood. It was bottled May 4, 2021, with 100 grams of residual sugar and 19.4% alcohol. This opened rather differently than the regular Noval Port this report, showing more open and expressive fruit, more cherries and even more power as they both aired out. The aromatics are excellent here too, but more fruit driven. When I came back to both some two days later, this brilliant and graceful Nacional made the wonderful regular Noval seem clumsy. It's the difference in styles, really, and reasonable minds might differ in preference, but this Nacional has more precision and more finesse. It is brighter and laser-like focused with an expression of fruit that seems so pure that you can almost think they used a spoon to fill the bottle after just crushing the grapes." 99 pts Mark Squires The Wine Advocate

"This is clearly packed, with a remarkably dense core of black currant, fig, acai berry and plum fruit that’s steeped in feel yet still well-defined. Licorice root, Turkish coffee, baker's chocolate and singed alder notes course through, adding impressive range and drive. All that power and density and there’s still great cut and a lingering mouthwatering edge. Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Cao, Sousao and Tinta Roriz. Best from 2040 through 2065. 167 cases made." 97 pts Wine Spectator.
