Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, anise, spices, nuanced, cassis, blueberries, touch of mint, layered, minerals, goes on and on, very long indeed.

Cork smouldered upon opening, unusual for such a young wine. Storage? Ruby with thin brick rim, sediments. I taste this very rarely so not that familiar with it. Starting out earthy, dates and figs, with air more dates and that sweet raisiny blueberries and liquorice aged Tempranillo fruit nose and palate. Fresh acidity, softer tannins, oak still evident, but quite dry finish. Lacks some fruit on the palate. Not a bad wine, but just not sitting that well together. Not tasted this vintage before, so do not know if it has seen faulty storage. Cork may suggest so. Yet should come fairly directly from Riscal this bottle. 89

1900 Barbeito Malvazia;
Dark amber, towards brown with golden rim. Intense and rich nose, leaping out of the glass, nuts, fruit cake, dried fruits, almost massive. High acidity, fresh and lively, layered but lacks the extraordinary nuances and complexity of a perfect D'Oliveiras bottle. 95

1983 Artur de Barros e Sousa Verdelho (Madeira)
Yes, this is a young Madeira. But the Olim brothers who run the family company ABSL makes some of the most elegant, nuanced, fruity and splendid of all Madeiras. Production rarely exceeds 3000 bottles a year, everything hand made, everything in canteiros, meaning heated by air in old lofts. Where can you by it? Normally only at their very old fashioned shop in Funchal. Fantastic! Very pale amber, dried apricots, raisins, bananas, vanilla (and it cannot be from the vastly old barrels....) fantastic layers and complexity. Fresh and high acidity, again nuanced feel, refreshing, lively, intense and still manages to be refreshing, long. 93

Deep amber, thin, gold rim. Intense, layered, massive complexity, lost for words. Rich, massive intensity, waves of flavours, dense texture, superb balance, briliant acidity, (shines like a diamond, even if I'm not sure if you can actually say briliant acidity). So playful and refined, stunning and incredible length. WOW. 99-100

Deep amber, red tints, golden rim. Intense and complex nose, nothing jumps out as Paul Pontallier says, magnificent and layered nose. Fresh and high acidity, playful, very lively fruit, superb texture, somewhat leaner than the 1908 Boal, but maybe a touch more refined. Very nuanced and long. 95

1932 D'Oliveiras Verdelho

1932 D'Oliveiras Verdelho;
Deep amber, orange rim. A touch of VA obsures this one a bit, caramel, nuts and spices. Fresh acidity, quite rich, fuller body than some Verdelho's, long finish. 88

Alex Lidell states in his Madeira book that: Verdelho in Madeira is different from Verdelho Branco or Gouveio, the variety of Verdelho found on the mainland Portugal, but is the same variety found on the Azores. Verdelho was the commonest variety until Phyloxera, at which time it was estimated to two- thirds of the island's vineyards, but now has the smallest production of the classical varieties (Bastardo, Terrantez and Moscatel is rarer by the way). It was not regarded as anything other than a good variety until early this century, when it was elevated to classical status.

Verdelho now grows mainly on the north side of the island, where it is more suited to the harsher climatic conditions. Must has marked acidity, and normally a potential alcohol of 10-12% Verdelho is often reffered to as medium rich, and the driest after Sercial. One producer, Artur de Barros e Sousa normally make a drier Terrantez, but this grape is normally similar or slightly sweeter, at least on the palate, than Verdelho.

1937 D'Oliveiras Sercial;
Amber with thin green rim. Layered nose, complex, nuts, caramel, spices, like spice shop, floral, orange peel. High acidity, mouthwatering, superb texture, old enough to have melloved, beautiful balance, concentrated feel, very long. 93

Some believe that Sercial and Riesling is the same grape, especially I've been told so many times on the island. The acidity is high for sure, but the flavours are so different, so I have my doubts. Noël Cossart in his book, Madeira, the island vineyard just states: "Sercial, pale, light-bodied, dry or extra dry, 0,5-1,5 degrees Baumé. True Sercial has a nutty nose and with age becomes mellow and medium dark, the mellowness rather covering the dryness." That is spot on for this one. Then he continues,"Sercial or Cercal was thought to be similar to the German Riesling, which, like its cousin in the Rhine valley, grows at high altitudes(?). It is fairly prolific, but rather shy bearer, and only grows in certain places. The grapes are round, soft and white, the leaf has four round lobes and very strong nerves which, by their projection, form a wrinkled appearance. The fruit is rather tasteless but fragrant."

Trevor Elliot in his book: The wines of Madeira states: " Sercial is grown mostly on the north of the island in Seixal, Porto Moniz, Ponta Delgada, Sao Vicente and Arco de Sao Jorge. In the south its mainly planted in Jardim da Serra at an altitude of 600-700 metres. (On the north coast, 100-150 metres) The grapes and bunches are medium in size, have high levels of acidity and the must have potential alcohol of 10-11% abv. Lastly, Alex Lidell's book, Madeira finaly states: "-to the German Riesling, it has no conection at all. On the mainland (Portugal) the variety is called Esganocao, or 'dog strangler', so called because of its mouthpuckering, astringent acidity."

The driest of the noble varieties.

1832 Barbeito Terrantez;
Golden with orange hue and yellow rim. Even as the cork went out of the bottle, it filled the room with aromas, pouring it into the glass, one could just sit and sniff it while the glass still rested on the table, getting ever more intense as the nose and glass finaly met up. Enormous intensity, layers, superb complexity, has almost every aroma you can think of, dried fruits, smoky hints, cakes, spices, wood polish, just ads and ads. Fresh and high acidity, intense, layered, fantastic length, minutes, could still taste it half an hour after the last sip. 100

This was tasted when visiting Barbeito outside Funchal, from the bottle above. I have never seen a note on this one, and never seen it for sale anywhere..... It's not listed in Alex Lidell's book on Madeira, and on the Madeira Wine Guide (which seems not to have been updated since 2006), it's not mentioned in the vintage guide. (There were a few other wines missing from that list as well). But another wine is, the 1832 Oscar Acciaioly Terrantez. On the 1795 Barbeito Terrantez, the Madeira Wine Guide states the following: "As Alex Liddell explains in his book “Madeira”, this wine originally belonged to the Hinton family. Oscar Acciaioly bought the wine from the Hintons. Later the wine was divided between his descendants. Mario Barbeito bought part of the remaining wine and returned it from demijohns to wood." Maybe this will be a future release and was bought in similar fashion, from the same source. As with the 1795 Barbeito Terrantez that I have actually tasted a few years back (a benchmark Madeira), this 1832 was magnificent as well.

A/B level fill, just at the bottom of the neck, very top shoulder. Pouring the wine into the glass, a beautifull bright ruby core, garnet rim with just a hint of brick. Nose of violets, very elegant blackcurrants and blackberries, hints of tobacco, prunes, fine leather, stones of stone fruits, touch of vanilla, pefumed, hint of roses, very seductive, not too intense, complex and very refined. Very pure. The florality just ads intensity after 25 minutes. On the palate, again very elegant, fantastic fresh acidity, so alive and vigorous, playfull and just carries the flavours for 30 seconds. Tannins ripe and feels more or less gone, quite a few still hang arround, relaxing on the tongue and gums. But they are so totally integrated in the texture and profile of the wine that you have to look hard to notice, they are in no way obvious, the texture is just gorgeous. Vibrant and kicking, pure, extremelly elegant. No difficulties finding Pauillac typicity in this one, mixed with the beautifull Lafite elegance. If this was a fake, please make more! A stunning wine. 95

Golden with orange hue, small bubbles. Mature, some oxidation and not as fres as the last bottle, yellow apples, nuts, fat and minerals. Nice mousse, elegant, fresh acidity, oxidized lemons, getting more sherryish with air, dies a bit in the glass and needs constant refreshing with wine from the bottle to try to keep up.
