Description

A wine of exceptional quality made only from the Sercial grape variety, aged in cask under the traditional canteiro system for a minimum of 20 years and bottled only when it begins to display the degree of depth and complex charachteristic of full maturity. Vintage Madeira aka Garrafeira or Frasqueira are the epitome or excellence and the glory of Madeira.

Tasting Notes

A sensational vintage madeira from 1971 and a wonder to behold, expressing an elegant bouquet of salty almond, lime peel, white peach, small flowers and mint. In the glass, there is a refreshing touch of citrus fruit, toffee and eucalyptus, counterbalanced by some smokiness and searing acidity. The finish is replete with mineral notes and outstanding length.
