    Pereira D’Oliveira Madeira Sercial Dry Frasqueira 1989 (bottled 2014, 25yo)

  • 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. Sercial 1989 tasting note: More time in wood equals more complex wood-balsalm volatile, secondary beauty. The fruit characters are raisined, preserved and citric all at once, wandering through a sky-wide nose of fine aromatic timber, grilled bread and nuts. Sercial's vegetality is largely subsumed by fine old wood perfume. Complex as all get-out, with great harmony and composure. Dry and saline in the mouth, but with textural generosity through the palate, marked by complex herbal-woodiness and spiced juicy acidity.
