    February 25, 2017 - Roast coffee beans, caramel, dried pears, hazelnuts, crystalised citrus fruit, salt spray, orange zest, prunes, figs, old varnished wood - there's a lot going on if you care to look. Tangy, some sweetness yet drying, racy acidity in the finish, good length. Delicious

    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.

    May 8, 2015 - very oaky, dresser furniture with polish, plum, orange skin, oak spices; oaky - raw, slight alc heat, but good balance otherwise. Others (not Verdelho) likely better
