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

This medium-dry madeira, with 69g of residual sugar, has a seductive bouquet of eucalyptus, lemon verbena, ginger and Ceylon tea leaves, and a subtle medium-bodied palate of dried apricot, iodine, white chocolate and allspice. Acidity is discernibly present and bountiful, leading to a long and precise finish.
