Quinta da Dôna 2009

 

Tasting Note

Minerals, spice and wild fruits on the nose lead on to a full and complex wine with concentrated mature fruit and woody notes. The dark fruit is pronounced, giving a long and persistent finish.

Producer Details
One of Portugal's largest and most progressive producers with 600 hectares spread across estates in five regions from Douro in the north to Alentejo in the south. Winemaker Francisco Antunes oversees what must be one of the most diverse ranges in Europe, from the 3rd largest Portuguese rose brand (Casal Mendes) to some of the country's most impressive premium reds from estates in Douro, Dao, Bairrada and Alentejo. Arguably, Francisco's greatest achievements lie between these extremes, a range of mid-priced wines from native varieties, full of character, quite distinctly Portuguese, but at the same time approachable and with fresh, modern fruit.

This is Aliança's top wine from Quinta da Rigodeira in Bairrada, which they took over in 2000. The first vintage of Quinta da Dona produced was in 2003.

In The Winery
Aged for 14 months in new French oak barrels.

Food Recommendations
Ideal with cheese and game.

Awards & Press
2004 Vintage: "From a parcel within Quinta Rigodeira, one of Alianca’s Bairrada estates, this flagship wine comes from a well-exposed slope. Only made in best years, it’s quite forward compared with Luis Pato’s Barrosa and has a lovely saturation of Baga plum and cherry fruit with a mineral undertow Sarah Ahmed - included in the 'Sarah Ahmed's 50
Great Portuguese Wines' tasting line-up in 2010
