Madeira 1715 J. C. A. & C. (21137)
TRICENTENNIAL TERRANTEZ Believed to be the oldest dated Madeira in existence. Now over 300 years old and aged for more than 50 years in cask before being bottled. About 150 grams per liter of residual sugar. Terrantez wines tend to fall between Verdelho and Bual, offering a fragrant balance between dry and sweet. Some of the most legendary Madeira wines are made from Terrantez, but the current harvest is very small, and old Terrantez wines are hard to find.

Madeira

The island of Madeira has been producing and exporting its namesake wine virtually since the Portuguese discovered it in 1419. Since then, Madeira’s location in the middle of important trade routes meant the success of its wines mirrored the worldwide geopolitical situation. The fortified wine’s fortunes have soared during times of peace, prosperity, and free trade and plummeted during conflict and international upheaval.
