Pereira D’Oliveira Madeira Bastardo Medium Dry Frasqueira 1927
Only 1 left
Pereira d'Oliveiras are the great small house of Madeira, with the largest collection of old wines in the wine world, much of it dating back to 1850. Colheitas are vintage wines less than 20 years of ageing in cask; north of 20 years, they are called Frasqueiras. Although these wines are categorised into 4 sweetness bands (dry/Sercial, medium/Verdelho and Terrantez, medium-sweet/Boal and sweet/Malvazia), the cold climate acidity of this Atlantic island is a dominant feature in even the sweetest. One of the world's rarest wines: Bastardo note: Bastardo is extremely rare: in 2015, just 55 litres of this black grape were harvested in Madeira! In the early 2000s, D’Oliveira had the good fortune to absorb a smaller house, Adegas do Torreão, whose legendary owner, Vasco Loja, had recently passed away. Like D’Oliveira, Loja supplied Madeiras to the major shippers. At the time of his death, his firm owned little bottled Madeira, but he did have some incredible wine still in barrel. By buying Loja’s stocks, D’Oliveira made several important additions to its portfolio, including a classic 1969 Sercial and one of the few examples of vintage Bastardo still in existence, from 1927.
