Dona Matilde Douro Tinto 2017
The red wine Dona Matilde is produced from Old Vines with local grape varieties, mainly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Amarela.
It is a wine with a ruby colour, with a complex aroma, initially to cherry and strawberry followed by mint, fig and spices. It is soft and smooth but with plenty of volume and structure. The wine shows hints of strawberry throughout the taste. Long aftertaste.
“Nicely balanced, this tightly wound Tinto shows good fruit, moderately ripe tannins, and a respectable finish. It has more grip on the finish than I anticipated, and it is filled with flavor. Elegant, seriously styled, and tasty, this is a nice deal.” Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, September 2020.
