95pts Decanter

Medium-rich in style (92 g/l residual sugar), the grapes for this wine originate from Calheta on the warmer south coast of Madeira. Mid-amber hue with gently smoked, yet rich savoury-spicy aromas – quite seductive and evocative. Lovely Elvas plum and quince marmalade richness with a spicy backdrop, balanced by fresh appley acidity. The long finish is akin to a gently cinnamon-spiced tarte tatin. Shows great complexity for a colheita. Glorious with savoury patés and stands up well to a curry, though equally good with caramelised oranges or a hedonistic slice of fruit cake mid-morning. 

93pts Wine Enthusiast

A mediumsweet Madeira, this is a beautifully textured wine. Its vibrant character is matched by the light wood and spice flavors that fill it out. It has great concentration and should be aged further. Drink from 2025, but it will certainly last longer.

Tasting Notes

Open topaz, limpid with golden nuance. A very characteristic bouquet, rich of spices, vanilla-like sweets, dried fruits and dried leaf infusions. The palate is sweet at first, then very balanced with freshness, smooth and dense, with a long finish of dried fruits and some spice.

Winemaker Notes

The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks until a neutral grape spirit brandy is added to stop the fermentation. Following fermentation, the wines undergo the ‘canteiro’ process used for fine Madeiras. They are placed in a lodge in American oak casks and heated solely by the sun’s warmth for 14 years. This heating process oxidizes the wine, giving it a very long life and its characteristic nutty, rich flavors.

Decanting will help remove any deposit that may have occurred in bottle over time. A wine that should be enjoyed served chilled.
