    Pereira D’Oliveira Madeira Tinta Negra Medium Sweet Frasqueira 1997 (bottled 2017, 20 yo)

  • Tasting notes
    Pereira d'Oliveiras are a 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. Tinta Negra tasting note: Tinta Negra perfectly pitched. It smells like a wander through the island - the briary wild bushes, the cool and damp soil, the faded ripe citrus and old orchard leaves all steeped together as a living, breathing sense-picture. As ever with good Madeira, it’s a wine to hold very still so the scent memories can wander out and say what they will ... There’s a touch of fruit flesh roundness, and the red-floral aspect tells of the black grape underlying, but these soon yield to Madeiran tangents, save the ongoing line of fine fruit ski. Delightfully leathered tannin, spiced and seasoned, radiates a sweet-sour perfume and closes onto a tickle of rainwater acidity. This is a brilliantly poised, perfectly judged medium-sweet.
