Tasting Notes

Delicate tawny brown colour with a broad amber rim displaying olive highlights. A complex symphony of aromas on the nose, with notes of apricot, sawn wood and tobacco, scents of orange flower and honeysuckle, all on a rich mellow base of toffee, marzipan and almond. Dense, concentrated, velvety palate lifted by a crisp acidity, with a confit of apricot, guave and raisin, flavours of butterscotch and a hint of caramelised orange. A wonderfully opulent and complex wine with a lovely youthful freshness.

 

“This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal.”  Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

 

98 Points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

“This draws you in, with aromas of warm halva and toasted pistachio giving way to a wide range of buckwheat, toasted sesame, walnut husk, menthol and licorice root notes that refuse to break down in the mouth. Exhibits remarkable length, with ample viscosity matched by steely tension, putting this in rarified air. Drink now. From Portugal”
