    The 1978 Terrantez, bottled in 2018, has a well-defined bouquet of smoked walnut, sea spray, dried honey and potpourri scents that gain traction with aeration. The palate is finely balanced thanks to the acidity that cuts effortlessly through the intense dried honey and ginger notes. There is just the right amount of oxidation here, lending that all-important finishing tang on the back of the throat. Not a profound expression of Terrantez, but this is well crafted.
