VERDELHO 15-Year Old MADEIRA 15 Years Old Madeira
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer Henriques & Henriques
Based on a tasting note of a sample provided by the agent: Light amber in colour. Gently sweet, burnt caramel, nuts, honey and sweet orange (shades of Cointreau) on the nose. Surprisingly dry - only gently sweet, tangy citrus and caramel flavours. Well balanced with a fine lingering finish with refreshing ripe lime-citrus acidity. CSPC 553701

LCBO Note Status A Vintage Assessments Explorer's Selection!
This complex and delicious Madeira confounds expectations of what the wine should be. At a blind tasting held this year by the Sommelier Guild, tasters were guessing everything from Tawny Port to Oloroso Sherry. This Madeira is not the 'slightly cooked sweet wine' of olden days. Food match: foie gras, walnut tart. Price $ 54.95
Bottle Size 750 mL
Tasting Date vintages release - June 12, 2004
Cases bought 20 (12 bottles per case)
