Very kindly pulled by Axel from his cellar to be shared with a couple of guests.
Olive brown in colour, slightly green rim; 40% opaque. Colheita tones VA on the nose, Granny Smith apples and toasted hazlenuts dominate the nose.
Thick texture, huge concentration. Powerful acidity dominates the tip of the tongue and balances the soft treacle and dried fig flavours.
Flavoursome aftertaste, full of coffee. Huge length, that goes through waves where you think it has faded and then it comes back.
Fabulous concentrated wine. Drunk 1 Feb after 30 minutes decanting. 94/100.
