A superb wine that brings together all the great elements of aged Madeira. There is a wonderful tight acidity over the natural sweetness of the wine, with notes of raisin, dark plum, smoke and surprising freshness, considering its age. This gorgeous limited edition wine will not age longer in the bottle, but can certainly be kept for several weeks once opened.
