1988 Smith Woodhouse Madalena

Post by LGTrotter » 00:00 Mon 02 Nov 2015

A pale colour with a very pale rim. Not the brown of an over done port, mainly pink. A little bit stinky on the nose, but this subsides With enough time. However it has a clean palate with strawberries and a soft sweetness. A decent length which is balanced throughout.

This used to be an old favourite of mine and it doesn't disappoint. This is a wine which would not score highly but for old times' sake it is a delight. With thanks to Derek and his over supply of port.
