17/01/2016 – Blandy’s 20 Year Old Terrantez

(2016) One of the rarest grapes of Madeira, this Terrantez was bottled to celebrate the bi-centenery of Blandy's. It has a glowing, burnished gold/tawny colour and real lift of spice, flowers, a lovely and arresting aromatic, with orange a rounded walnut character of age and oxidation sitting behind. The palate has fantastic richness and mellow coffee-infused, red fruit freshness. Just beautiful balance, the tawny, nutty marmalade and prune notes against the abundant citrus freshness, fat mouth-filling sweetness and texture, and an endless finish.
