2008 Numanthia Termanthia

The capstone of the Numanthia line-up is the ultra rare Termanthia. This limited production wine made from the fruit of very old vines is always tricky to present at events like these. Will it be open? Can the potential burst out of the deep, dark core? Will people like it?

The answer as usual was a resounding yes, though people did talk of the “obvious potential” of the wine and its “very dark fruit with velvety overtones.”  

“Great minerality, balance and structure” and rich “black currant and cherry” fruit. It’s a wine that takes some time to show what it has. You really have to pay attention if you want to catch most of it. If you really want to get the full Termanthia experience this vintage will need some time.

The pairing with the braised beef was not without its detractors, but most guests felt this was the star pairing of the night!
