Dona Maria 2016 (Portugal: Alentejano)

Name Dona Maria 2016
Varietal Vinho Branco
Region Portugal: Alentejano
Notes "The 2016 Branco is a roughly equal blend of Arinto, Viosinho and Antão Vaz, all unoaked. It maintains reasonable freshness for the vintage, although it isn't as fresh as the 2015. For the regular white, though, this has good mid-palate solidity, with just enough zest and the ability to hold up to food. The acidity—likely the Arinto kicking in—does support the fruit. This may be a step behind the overachieving 2015, but at the price you can't go wrong." (Wine Advocate)
