1988 Madalena

Post by AHB » 22:00 Mon 14 Nov 2011

Served as an aperitif to the Matrix Tasting on 11 October 2011.

Very floral nose, full of spring bluebells and redcurrants. Smooth entry, full bodied with modest tannins, bags of fruit and a lovely balance. Delightful aftertaste. This is really nice drinking. 89/100.
