Reviews and Ratings

From the Barriada wine region, Quinta Do Encontro Preto Branco Reserva 2016 is a full-bodied and smooth black and white grapes blend of Touriga Nacional and Bical white wine grape. Full-bodied, smooth and very approachable now with fresh red berry, bright acidity and structured tannins. Nice now better in a year or two to give it time to marry and mellow. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
