    Pereira D’Oliveira Madeira Boal Medium Sweet Frasqueira 1987 (bottled 2013, 26yo)

  • Tasting notes
    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. Boal tasting note: Rich, raisined fruits, figgy with touches of maraschino and fat walnuts in a jam-packed, luscious nose. It’s grapey and succulent, but there's lift and freshness, too - the smell of first rain after a long dry spell, with fine old balsamic timber complexity. Wonderful toasty-carob and grapey-raisin. The twin-tracked sweetness is beautifully rounded through two-thirds of the palate, then planes out and becomes lighter, drier and more lingering. Nuts and dates slide along a praline slick to a long, salt-braced drying finish.
