    August 9, 2013 - No bottling date given but clearly bottled very recently, probably 2013 or 2012 at the earliest. 19% ABV. Intense old gold colour, shot with amber and orange; the nose is relatively restrained and quite dry but opens up well after a few days and displays typical aromas of nuts, candied fruit and a subtle note of spices and flowers (Gin/Cognac), fresh and with good depth, hint of wood; on the palate medium dry, quite intense and compact, clean and linear, with mouthwatering tangy acidity, salty, savoury; very good length, dry finish. A good 10 YO, fine QPR at € 18 and a far cry from the old fashioned, cooked and caramelly style of yore.

    December 25, 2011 - Clear amber colour. Strong nose of orange and its zest, plums and figs. Nearly dry taste, high in alcohol and powerful, very good pre dinner wine

    July 20, 2011 - On the nose some orange peel and slight mineral,rancio notes.Very nice semi-dry palate,smooth and balanced,showing vibrant bitter orange and rather subtle mineral and rancio flavors.Good balancing acidity.Incredibly smooth,almost silky aftertaste for a madeira.Hedonistic stuff.

    July 19, 2011 - Amber brown.
    A balanced baked fruit nose with loads of figs. Slight rubber, nuts and leather.
    Really comes alive on the palate. Sweetish but finely balanced - pretty refreshing even - medium bodied feel. Baked fruit, charcoal, nuts, leather, cinnamon, ginger and dried lemon peel. Good acidity through the lengthy aftertaste.
    A fine well-balanced Verdelho. Refreshing stuff.
