D’Oliveira, Colheita Terrantez 1988

Rating: 17.5/20pts
This grape is as rare as hen’s teeth, having been driven almost to extinction, but is still much sought-after. Fragrant and floral aromas of candied fruit and rose petals; not especially rich, with a bittersweet twist. Very fine and delicate with ravishing acidity and length.
