Description

This blend of 80% Tinta Negra and 20% Verdelho is aged in cask for 5 years naturally, without the addition of caramel and is designed to mimic the ‘Rainwater Style’ of Madeira. The origins of this style are ambiguous, (depending on who you speak to), but it is thought to derive from when the barrels were left outside and the wine inside took on a particular characteristic having been lashed by the Atlantic rains.  What we can be certain of is that this is a stunning style medium dry Madeira that has complex flavours of almonds, caramel, nuts and candied fruits.  The finish is long and balanced with terrific acidity.

1999 Sercial, D’Oliveiras, Madeira

Sercial

The aged Madeiras from this fine property are an utter delight and always offer a degree of complexity and elegance that puts them firmly in fine wine territory.  Bottled after 19 years in cask, this is complex and nutty with a fresh, zingy vein of acidity running through it, sharpening the richness of the fruit on the amazingly long finish.

Mouchao Licoroso.JPG

2013 Sobremesa Tonel, Mouchao Licoroso, Alentejo

Alicante Bouschet

The Sobremesa Tonel, Mouchao Licoroso has aromas of deep black fruits, dark sweetness, dry fruits, combined with the freshness of mint and eucalyptus. On the palate it is complex, being  full and rich with intense, spicy notes to the warm cocoa, tobacco and black fruits.  Decadent, different and one to enjoy post dinner in good company.

Niepoort Tawny Dee Half Bt.JPG

Niepoortland Tawny Dee, Niepoort, Douro Valley Half Bt

Douro Blend

The Niepoortland Tawny Dee sees around three and a half years in small barrels so is just starting to develop a brick red/tawny colour and has delicate nutty aromas and a hint of dried fruits on the nose. On the palate it is beautifully balanced with a youthful fruity, luscious character, which integrates well with a long spirity finish.
