Madeira 1891 Henriques de Araújo, José Gomes Sercial

Sercial, Bottled 1949, Re-bottled 1973. Re-bottled 1998

Provenance: Christies London, 3/16/2017

Tasting note: Multiple notes. First in 2014. Fresh smoky tones in a slightly sweet attractive nose, tobacco, leather and butterscotch aroma. Very fne, very nice nose. Tangy taste start, concentrated and intense. Lots of extract as can be expected of a long cask aged wine, touch spirity. On the fnish some red grapefruit aroma and slight lingering bitter tone. Long. Very good wine. A classic Sercial with high natural concentrated acidity. Later that year the same sample bottle, shipped to NY for the pre-sale tasting, double decanted 9 hours in advance was phenomenal. A superb wine of great Sercial refinement, one of the best Sercials I have tasted. In the range of 18 vintage Madeira’s the wine that stood out in a top three. Another bottle served a year later at the NY Bring Your Own Madeira Bottle dinner in showed its class. One of the wines of the evening. Last tasted December 2015. 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.
