Henriques & Henriques, 20 Years Old Terrantez, Madeira, Portugal, NV

20 Years Old Terrantez
Platinum - Best in Show: Best in Show
Natural Cork
100% Terrantez
Terrantez remains a rarity on Madeira, so our judges were excited to come across this beautifully aged example. It's a pale amber in colour, with hauntingly nutty aromas of huge complexity, evoking the dusty attics in which it doubtless aged, as well as the long succession of hot summers and mild winters which has teased it to this level of refinement and complexity. Nuts -- but also apples, apricots, raisins, dried mushrooms, quince paste... you'll find more still if you go searching. On the palate, it is light, bright and refined, with the characteristically intense acidity of Madeira perfectly balanced out by 74g/L of residual sugar. That cascade of flavoury refinements follows, carried effortlessly on the wine's elemental components (acidity, extract, some glycerol and 20% of warming alcohol). This is the perfect discussion wine... for any time of day. DRINK 2018-2035
