Avaliação Pato Frio Antão Vaz 2016:

“The 2016 Antão Vaz Pato Frio is unoaked and comes in at 12.5% alcohol. This is a fine bargain and probably the best in its brand so far. As tended to happen in this vintage, it shows fine fruit and concentration for the level but it is the beautiful crispness and fresh finish that seal the deal and make it a cut above. Nicely done, it is a wine that works well as porch-sipper but it has enough stuffing for mild foods. This might well age gracefully for a few years but it will likely be at its best when it is drunk very young. It may not hold long at its peak. Its energy is appealing now, though. That’s a hint. These are, says the winery, all “vegan friendly,” with ingredients of “mineral origin” only. They are also very friendly for those with modest wallets. There are a bunch of inexpensive wines that perform beautifully here. They are can’t-miss bargains. They may not all age so well but it’s hard to argue with them at the moment for the price suggested. Just drink them young.”

Avaliação Barrancôa Branco 2016

“The 2016 Branco Barrancôa is a blend of 50% Antão Vaz and 25% each of Síria and Arinto, unoaked and coming in at 12.5% alcohol. Along the lines of the pure Antão Vaz Pato Frio this issue, this is probably not quite as round but it might have even better acidity. Fresh and refreshing, its pointed finish is very pretty and very juicy. As with the Pato Frio, I doubt that this will truly reward cellaring, so it is best drunk young. Neither may hold at peak all that long. It is worth leaning up on it for the moment. It’s another fine bargain from this producer in this issue. These are, says the winery, all “vegan friendly,” with ingredients of “mineral origin” only. They are also very friendly for those with modest wallets. There are a bunch of inexpensive wines that perform beautifully here. They are can’t-miss bargains. They may not all age so well but it’s hard to argue with them at the moment for the price suggested. Just drink them young.”
