Description Build A Case!
D'Oliveira is one of the greatest of the classic Madeira shippers, and one of the few to survive from the pre phylloxera era. Founded in 1820, and today housed in cellars that date from 1619, this small jewel of a company is still owned by the same family, its vineyard holdings built up over time through a series of marriages with other wine producing families. But what is really extraordinary is that D'Oliveira has held on to many of its most famous vintages, creating a unique, and irreplaceable, stock of old wines. And remarkably they are all D'Oliveira wines, not purchased from other shippers or growers. Thus, whether an 1862 Sercial or a 1922 Bual, all were produced by the D'Oliveiras and their ancestors, and generally from their own vineyards in Sao Martinho, one of the great viticultural sites in Madeira, lying just to the west of Funchal along the island's south coast.

Tasting Notes: A wine with a very fresh and very complex nose with notes of creme brulee, dried apricot, quince and hints of wild strawberry and fresh fig. A really stunning bouquet, developing a touch of chlorine with time. The palate is just huge: incredibly powerful, spicy hints of caramel, gif, Indian spice, Chines 5 spice with an extravagant bravura finish that is so viscous and beautifully defined with apricot lingering seductively on the back palate. Absolutely stunning.
