    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. *****

    February 24, 2014 - Clear and bright with a pale brown colour and dense legs. The nose is clean and fully developed, showing medium+ intensity aromas of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, prunes, walnut, clove and cedar. The wine is medium-dry with a high refreshing acidity, high alcohol, low tannins, medium+ body and medium+ intensity flavours of caramel, brown sugar, prunes, walnut, clove and cedar. Long finish.

    It is an outstanding quality wine with a great complexity provided by the maturation process, a lingering finish, a very good overall balance with a well integrated acidity and the typicity of a Verdelho Madeira. Drink now, the wine will not improve in the bottle, but it can be kept for many years.

    December 26, 2013 - Not overly sweet, well balanced, good complexity and balance, but not overly exciting.

    September 4, 2013 - Beautiful Madeira nose, but on the palate a bit light and not completely round. Length and intensity of other Madeira is also more impressive. Still always a delight to have such a complete wine.

    June 8, 2013 - Old sherry nose and explosive mouth. Little bit sweet but not too much.
    Really good aproach to Madeira wines
