Quinta Do Silval – Dorna Velha Reserva 2016 – Douro

Quinta Do Silval – Dorna Velha Reserva 2016 – Douro

The nose is fruity and slightly tight. It reveals notes of ripe grapes, apple and white flowers associated with discreet touches of racy minerality and citrus. The palate is fruity, fresh, incisive, chiselled and offers a slight acid frame as well as a small juiciness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe lemon, green apple, flowers and slight touches of quenette, lychee associated with subtle touches of fresh kumquat, fresh mandarin as well as a very discreet hint of eucalyptus (in the background) and toasted touch on the finish. Good length and persistence. Gourmandise on the finish.
