Description

A wine of exceptional quality made only from the Verdelho 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

With 65g of residual sugar, this 1890 is the second oldest Verdelho from D'Oliveira, a wonderful wine that will age forever. Feauring an aromatic profile of caramelised balsamic, roasted chestnut, coffee bean, orange peel, wax resin and tangerine, this madeira packs intensity and precision, with a palate of hazelnut, tangy acidity, toffee and chocolate. The finish is sublime, with no apparent end.
