Tasting note: First tasted February 2016 then a high toned nose, spirity, straw, and slightly raisined. Very mature appearing. Rosehip tone. Quite punchy on the nose. With some air the spirity acetone tone vanished slowly giving way to concentrated subdued sweet dried peaches aromas, vintage furniture wax, vanilla and honey cake. Long cask aged style. Sweet start with high acidity, raisins, waxy, and intense. On the side a warm spirity tone finalizing with some natural bitters and orange zest. Intense concentrated wine with a bite. Powerful. On the after taste sweeter and more balanced, in concentrated orange fruit style. Later that year showing more charm. Rich intense nose of sweet sun ripened fruits, honey, floral tones, and hint a of peaches, slightly ethereal, quite intriguing. Soft taste start, raisiny, dried peaches and uplifted. On the finish touch of bitterness and alcohol. Long cask aged style. Fresh finish of creamy flavors and dried peaches. Very good. June 2016 EV.

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.
