Mafalda 2017 – Douro

Mafalda 2017 – Douro

The nose is fruity and offers a small intensity, a small power as well as a good definition. It reveals notes of red berries, ripe cherry and small notes of ripe blackberry associated with a touch of flowers, blueberry as well as slight hints of licorice stick, cardamom and very discreet hints of oleander/ local grove. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, very discreetly tight and offers a fine acidulous frame, a beautiful juicy / ripe fruit, a small fat, gourmandize, deepness, a fine power as well as a fine straightness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy / ripe black cherry, juicy / ripe blackberry and small notes of juicy / ripe blueberry associated with touches of juicy / ripe wild strawberry, hints of licorice stick, cardamom as well as a discreet hint of sense of the place, spices and an imperceptible hint of coffee (in the background). Tannins are very slightly marked. Good length.
