Description

***Wine Spectator 2016 – 97 Points***


“This lively Madeira is defined by loads of dried citrus notes, with off-dry accents of roasted peach, tropical fruit, marzipan and flan. Distinctive smoky details provide an almost peaty sub note. Truffle and forest floor elements linger on the finish. Shows amazing freshness and purity. Drink now through 2060. – KM”


Blandy’s Terrantez 1977 was aged for 38 years in seasoned American oak casks and as with all the family’s vintages, this wine
started its ageing process in the warm high attic floors of the lodge in the centre of Funchal. Over the 38 years, the wine passed
down from the warmer top floor of the Blandy’s Wine Lodges, the “Sotão de Amendoa” where it spent the first 7 years, to the
second floor for 10 years and finally to the cooler first for the remaining 21 years. The art of finding the right balance between concentration and the freshness of the wine lies in the winemaker’s decision when to transfer the wine to the lower cooler north facing floors of the lodge.

Cellarage & Serving
This wine should be stored upright in a dark room with constant temperature, ideally no higher than 16ºC. As the wine is
completely stabilized, it is recommended to pull the cork at least 2 day before enjoying this wine. Decanting will help remove any
deposit that may have occurred in bottle over time. A wine that should be enjoyed not higher than 17ºC.
