Henriques and Henriques 50 year old Tinta Negra Madeira 50cl

£159.95
H&H have released a limited amount of the award winning 50 Year Old Tinta Negra, presented in a striking black and purple box. This 50 year old wine shows distinct tertiary characteristics from long maturation in very old American Oak casks and it expresses itself in great style and quality with lovely balance, good acidity and concentration, being a brilliant example of the Tinta Negra varietal. Deliciously sweet and freshly balanced with expressive acidity, this Tinta Negra shows smooth concentration, having been aged in old wooden casks. Flavours of candied fruits, black monukka raisins, toffee and molasses. At this age it is the belle of the ball. Press: A deep toffee apple hue belies a lively, lifted nose and palate rife with sweet herbal/pot pourri and deeper, delicious cafe crème and bourbon vanilla riffs. In the mouth it's very well focused; punchy acidity lends great vitality lift, line and length to its medium dry palate of black Cardamon and tamarind spiked chutneyed apple and citrus fruit. Spice and tobacco notes linger. Thoroughly delicious and surprisingly zingy and youthful. Sarah Ahmed, Wine Detective Toasted almonds, spices, plum compote, incense, figs and honey. In the mouth it impresses by its liveliness, volume, freshness with an intense acidity which gives it a lingering finish. Rui Falcão on awarding TN50YO Wine of the Year 2015 Delicious grippy iodine and pepper; rich yet elegant with lovely Christmas cake notes but always with the spice of citrus acidity. Savoury, long and lingering.
