Perestrello, Terrantez 1840
Rebottled by GD and FMA. New wax cap. New stencilling on old nineteenth century bottle. Level into neck
Tasting note: Clear golden yellow color. Fresh straw, lemons, springflowers, touch of varnish and butter on the fine high toned nose. Quite on concentrated and on the butterscotch side. Old furniture wax and fresh herbs. Quite complex very nice aromas.Soft well balanced start of taste, lemon zest, freshly sweet, on the finish fine buttery. Quite elegant, like buttersweets. Fine tuned Terrantez of very good quality, especially the balance and finesse is remarkable. Vintage furniture wax with fine grapefruit bitters on the finish. Very good wine. Last tasted February 2016. EV.
