Atlantis Rosť

, 2017

Portugal Madeira

Madeirense DOP, Madeira 75cl

This is a dry Rosť from Blandy's. With madeira sales becoming ever smaller there is clearly a need to do something else with the grapes- a la the Douro region in Portugal, where some excellent non fortified wines have and are being made.
This is my first taste of a non fortified wine from Madeira.
It's a lurid pink and only 10.5% alcohol. So I am thinking sweet.
It's dry, boiled, confected cherry drop nose. Grubby, stalky, cherry fruit on the palate. Quite frankly its terrible. Not juts me, my wife was hugely unimpressed. I wanted to like this as I do all wines, but this is really not up to standard.
