Description

A wine of exceptional quality made only from the Terrantez grape variety, aged in cask under the traditional canteiro system for a minimum of 20 years and bottled only when it begins to display the degree of depth and complex charachteristic of full maturity. Vintage Madeira aka Garrafeira or Frasqueira are the epitome or excellence and the glory of Madeira.

Tasting Notes

With 67g of residual sugar, this delicous Terrantez, as a grape varietal almost extinct today, boasts an outgoing bouquet of roasted espresso, mocha, mahogany and orange zest. In the glass, highly attractive creaminess begs to be enjoyed, as layers of furniture store, dusty soil, roasted nuts, cloves and leather unfurl in layers. This is a rare and distinguished wine full of finesse, that offers a complex savoury palette and outstanding length, with lingering notes of orange peel and ravishing acidity on the intensely satisfying finish.
