    June 3, 2016 - Golden brown. Great bouquet with walnuts and orange zest, really intense and lingering, off dry, layers of fruit, with prunes and figs, caramel, density of fruit balanced by lovely acidity, long zesty nutty finish.

    May 28, 2016 - A private lunch (The Nut Tree Inn *, Murcott, UK): A 50cl bottle. An outstanding Verdelho, complex and intense, medium dry, crystallised apricot fruit, nuts, vanilla, spices, tangy yet silky and harmonious, salty intensity, excellent length. A classic Verdelho, nothing out of place.

    February 3, 2016 - Madeira Pilgrimage; 2/1/2016-2/4/2016 (Madeira): Smells like tropical, glazed fruits (a whole lot of them). Sweet pineapple, glazed pears, canned peaches, honey. Good stuff, but I was expecting to like this more than I did.

    dry, smoky, peppery
    very elegant

    Long

    March 6, 2014 - Brown and mahogany in colour. The nose is complex. Roasted coffee, chocolate, hazelnut and banana cake, but still retaining a zesty bite. I think the real beauty of this comes in the balance on the palate, bright Seville orange acidity without becoming too piquant, combined with soft caramel that adds weight to the body. Long, vinous finish, with a toasty mocha sensation that keeps the length going on and on. This is serious, intense Madeira but its so easy to enjoy. *****
