Tasting note: Refined sweet nose of dried peaches, pepper and straw. Showing typical Sercial concentration without the usual high toned character. Intriguing aromas. Quite sweet taste start for a Sercial, tangy acidity packed in more luscious mouth feel. The tight acidity lingering on the finish reveals the Sercial character but in all a sweeter more seductively styled Madeira. Very good. Tasted August 2016. EV

Madeira

The island of Madeira has been producing and exporting its namesake wine virtually since the Portuguese discovered it in 1419. Since then, Madeira’s location in the middle of important trade routes meant the success of its wines mirrored the worldwide geopolitical situation. The fortified wine’s fortunes have soared during times of peace, prosperity, and free trade and plummeted during conflict and international upheaval.

J.C.A. & Co.

-

The company is also known as Joao Carlos D'Aguiar & Co (also: & Cia). Sometimes the bottles are marked with the letters J.C.A. & Co. The company is near certainty founded by descendants of Diogo Alfonso d'Aguiar, one of the nobles sent by King Alfonso V to Madeira to marry the children of Joao Goncalves Zarco da Camara. Diogo Alfonso de Aguiar married D. Isabel Gonçalves d'a Camara Third daughter of Zarco. They had three sons and two daughters. Diogo Alfonso de Aguiar, Rui Dias de Aguiar, Peter Alfonso de Aguiar, Ignez Dias d'a Camara, and Constanca Rodrigues d'a Camara. The family was prominent in the Camara district. Who Joao Carlos d'Aguiar descended from is still a mystery. Several bottles are known from the 18th, and the early 19th century, all bottles were filled before the 1940ies. According to the family lore, the previous century a descendant named Clemente d' Aguiar owned all the factories and farms. Some factories were in Machico, and the farms were in Camara de Lobos (Quinta da Lourencinha) Santo da Serra, Funchal and Machico. The d'Aguiar family owns some excellent vineyards, producing still fine Sercial and Verdelho.
