Professional Wine Reviews for Quinta Do Monte D'oiro Madrigal 2013

Rated 92 by Robert Parker
The 2013 Madrigal is all Viognier, aged in a mixture of tank (60%) and new French oak (40%). To my mind, this will take its place with the best Madrigals - which is a pretty good place to be. Controlling its oak pretty well, even at this young age, this shows fine concentration and persistence on the finish, yet a certain gracefulness that makes it wonderfully appealing. It is a beautifully balanced Madrigal that puts it all together, combining a sunny demeanor, fine fruit and good aromatics. As it continues to evolve, it may yet improve. You can most certainly drink this now, but I suspect a year in the cellar will do it a lot of good, too.

Additional Information on Quinta Do Monte D'oiro Madrigal 2013

Winery: Quinta Do Monte D'oiro

Varietal: Viognier

The green skinned grapes of the Viognier varietal are a true French classic, and are the only grape varietal allowed to be used in certain fine wines produced in the Rhone region. Their highly aromatic qualities are prized by wineries and wine drinkers alike, and are widely admired for their extremely floral nose which gives an impression of sweetness, despite these wines almost always being very dry. The precise origins of the Viognier grape are lost in time, but today they can still be found growing in many regions of France, as well as in several countries of the New World. Their floral aromas and fruit-forward flavors make them a favorite for those seeking an elegant wine, and despite the grapes being notoriously difficult to grow, vintners persevere with them, as they know the results are rarely less than spectacular.

Country: Portugal

Benefiting from both the hot, dry Iberian climate as well as brisk Atlantic winds, Portugal is a perfectly situated country for vineyard cultivation and wine production. With a wine making history which stretches back thousands of years, it comes as little surprise that wine plays an important role in the cultural identity and practices of the country. The Phoenicians, the Carthaginians, the Greeks and the Romans all had a hand in forming Portugal as an important center for wine production, and over the millennia, this resulted in each region of this beautiful part of Europe producing its own distinctive wines easily identifiable and separate from neighboring Spain's. Today, the varied terroir and climate across Portugal allows a great range of wines to be made each year, from the fresh and dry Vinho Verde wines to the famous and widely drunk fortified Port wines, and many in between.
