    Pereira D’Oliveira Madeira Terrantez Medium Dry Frasqueira 1988 (bottled 2014, 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. Terrantez tasting note: The rare Terrantez variety can be bottled as medium dry or medium sweet. This medium dry version is a remarkably complex, fascinating wine. Bitter medicinal herb aromatics with bracken, spiced wood, salted caramels, faded jar preserves, old straw and a touch of the maritime. The palate is sweet at first, with inseparable elements suggesting honey, brick, earth and wood. There's an incredibly layered juicy acidity, which carries sweetness akin to a memory of the skins of fruit that has given it up as a preserve. Gloriously gathered in the mouth, it is very complex yet deft, dancey, effortlessly balanced to off-dry.
