D.Bolger, Terrantez 1862
Madeira
Bottled from demi-john in 2019. New wax capsules with DB family seal. New stenciling. Levels: into-neck
Tasting note: First tasted October 2019. Expressive high toned nose of deep banana leaves and caramel. Nice perfume. Intense aromas.
Soft semi-sweet taste of rich dried apricots, full mouth filling intense mid with fine singing focused acidity over dried fruit finish. A beautiful texture of concentrated fruit purity and lovely natural concentrated acidity. Great wine of well-defined finesse and intensity.
Most recently; Very concentrated aromas on the nose, banana leaf, honey cake and dried peaches.
A broadening very refined and intriguing wine. Great harmony of aromas which just keeps you impressed. Fairly sweet. This is getting close to perfection, very noble and well balanced. There is a level of concentration combined with a drinkability that’s unique.
Comparable to the extra level, balance and depth of taste of a Bordeaux first growth. The Bolger family clearly had kept only the highest quality of Torre Bella wines for the family reserves.
Later that year on Porto Santo:
High toned nose of dried bananas, lots of refinement here, soft fudge notes, Indian spices, curry, there is lots going on here. A symphony of aromas and perfumes. Multi layered nose of absolute great quality.
Mouth filling suave start of taste, flowing out so gently in a very fine balance. Impressive in its refinement, keeping the knife cut middle between a dry and sweet taste. This has so much class. Makes you sit up and pay attention. A high level of regal like character.
In the high level of quality of this Bolger series, this is arguably the best.
A wine to savor on your knees! Magical. Last tasted August 2021. Edwin Vos
