'Relatively little specifics about this wine’s make-up exists. Tinta Barocca, Souzao/Sezao and likely Cinsaut make up the majority of the varieties used here. After fermentation and fortification the wine was matured in 500l wooden casks for 34 years, until bottling in 1982! Incredibly pure fruited and complex nose. Baking spice, toffee, stewed apricot, almond and honey all combine to offer a sensational bouquet. The palate is remarkably light on its feet for a wine of such age and residual sugar. Clarity is the hallmark here. Long and refreshing at the back without being cloying. This is world-class with no signs of being at the end of its life! Keep until the 100 year mark in 2048 if you can resist.' – Wine Cellar, March 2022
