1997 Broadbent "Single Cask 235" Malvasia Madeira

SKU #1446720

Grapes are supplied by several winegrowers from the North West of Madeira Island. Vines have an average age of 25 years, and are trained using the Latada vine training system. Grapes are manually harvested in September, according to ripeness. The grapes are totally destemmed, crushed and pressed. The must obtained was allowed to ferment with wild yeasts at controlled temperature of 61°F (16°C) in stainless tanks. Fermentation is stopped by addition of neutral grape spirit (96% minimum) in order to keep the desired sweetness. The wine was aged in and old American oak cask 650L in the traditional "Canteiro" system (natural oxidative process). The final wine has a brown bowl with a subdued amber rim. A spirity nose that is musky and fungal. It smells dry, from its aging in wood. High acidity, but also rich, sweet and powerful, with huge flavors and aromas of chestnut. Hot finish. Extremely long and massive wine that tastes much older than 1997.
