Pereira D'Oliveiras


Terrantez Medium Dry Frasqueira (bottled 2015, 38yo) 1977


Herbal, thistle-ish marmalade nose with saline and iodine typicity, nutty wood and spiced honey. The palate is entirely unlike other fortified styles - in flavour it resembles a palo cortado but the spirit is virtually absent and the acid literally thrilling. Incredible, lingering sense of faded jar fruits, slightly earthy, slightly oceanic. It's exquisite, unforced and delicately driven by the finest acidity.
