The non-vintage Terrantez Old Reserve is a selection of the finest Terrantez grapes (not there is much left on the island) and aged for ten years in oak casks. This was bottled in February 2011. It has a slightly disjointed nose at first, taking time to settle down over several hours and eventually offering a dainty bouquet of hazelnut, antique bureau, orange rind, pressed flowers and a touch of leather. The palate is taut and vibrant on the entry with orange zest, fiery red peppers and a touch of marmalade. Compared to other Broadbent bottlings, it shows more sense of purpose, more 'thrust'. It has a palpable sense of symmetry towards the finish that just eases off the accelerator. But this is very true to this wonderful grape variety, especially upon its extraordinarily long, lightly spiced aftertaste. -91 Points Wine Advocate
