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

In the Rhone region of France, one of the most ancient and highly esteemed grape varietals is the Viognier, a green-skinned grape famed and admired for its highly aromatic qualities and delicious fruit-forward nature. The wine it produces is remarkably pale, and is a popular choice with those looking for an extremely elegant wine to be enjoyed in hot weather and paired with equally aromatic foods. The Viognier varietal is known for having an extremely floral nose, which gives an impression of summery sweetness over a wine which is usually dry, although it is occasionally given over to noble rot in order to intensify its sugars. Viognier grapes can be successfully blended with several other grape varietals, as they are in certain New World countries, and can also be aged to produce exceptionally crisp and dry white wines.

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.
