1973 D'Oliveira Verdelho Madeira

SKU #1061893

Verdelho grapes yield what is arguably the most effortlessly balanced of Madeiras: lightly sweet and wonderfully balanced by acidity. D'Oliveira is one of only seven Madeira shippers left on the island, and it is among the most traditional of these. Their stocks of old wine are legendary. This particular wine is a real gem, with a mouthwatering array of dried fruit flavors, subtle brown sugar and spice notes. You can have vintage Madeira open for many months, even years, without much noticeable degradation in quality. Also, please note that these wines love air, and will greatly reward decanting prior to service. (Joe Mankein, K&L Spanish Wine Buyer)

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and D„o area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
