    Pereira D’Oliveira Madeira Malvazia Sweet Frasqueira 1907 (bottled 2013, 106yo)

  • 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. Malvasia tasting note: Deeply woody and bricky, opens to tea, fine adobe, honey, pippy sweetness, with lantana herbals and chocolate. The treacly richness exists within an amazing aromatic liveliness, thanks in part to a rainwater-juicy freshening lift. Very deep in the mouth, the palate interplays marmalade and molasses, with lots of complex volatile development character and wood-spice, yet still showing citrus through fine toffee. Starts with power, becomes increasingly mellow and then outright fresh, with a juicy line. It's vibrant and delicate with toffee, spice and acidity in a persistent dancery. This masterpiece perfectly sums the complex sugar-acid wood+time flutter of Madeira. Cane sugar, herb, jar fruits, nuts, lavish timber aromas, spice, sugar and acid are woven into a complex, effortless, magisterial amalgam. Unbelievable wine.
