Qta. D. Mafalda A. B. 2017

“This producer has many virtues – including good price points and a fresh feel to the wines. There’s not a lot of oak in use here, and the wines have admirable purity and mid-palate finesse. For those who prefer grace and elegance, these are good choices.”

“The 2017 A. B. Quinta Dona Mafalda, « (…) when last seen, this showed well. Let’s check in. Equally beautiful now, this has started to develop as I’d hoped. It shows a juicy and fresh finish, plus purity and some signs of complexity. The mid-palate finesse is admirable. The Alicante throws off some of its typical beefy nuances. With the stainless steel component, this emphasizes that purity and precision, not just power and fruit. Indeed, it is not a fruit-forward and simple style. There is plenty of power, but the tannins are not overly hard. (…).”
