August 25, 2014 - The Eatery: completely dry with sweet impressions, very powerfully flavored with high acidity and crushed walnuts, molasses, coffee, pecans, dried fig; intense, slightly aldehydic, very cool flavors. Like nothing else. This should be drank as an aperitif or with braised seasoned meats/stews, anything with nuts, cheese.1 person found this helpful Comment
January 10, 2014 - Quick taste. Rich, classic nose (though blindly I'd guess Boal), dried figs, oranges. Very rich, spicy, very good acidity. Long.
August 20, 2013 - Besøk hos Pereira d'Oliveira (Funchal, Madeira): Duft: Flott nese, forbausende fruktig.
Igjen en utrolig fruktighet, flott syre, lang ettersmak og perfekt balanse.
Marginalt bedre enn Sercial 1969.

October 27, 2012 - As expected. These wines are very stable and predictable. Almonds, Vanilla, with a slight crisp acididty in there.
May 3, 2012 - Wine dinner with work colleagues (Medlar, Chelsea, London): Just the right amount of sweetness to have after dinner, this was amazing with its dried fruits, layers and layer of nuance
