D'OLIVEIRA 68 BUAL MADEIRA 750ML

Tasting notes and comments:


•Produced from the southwest part of the island and spending over 40-years in old oak casks, this ’68 was bottled in 2009 and is far superior to previous bottlings. This has a very sensuous nose, well defined and tightly wound, unfurling to reveal molasses, quince, scorched earth and a touch of leather. Very subtle. The palate is medium-bodied with good tension, fine acidity and balance, very subtle towards the finish with dried orange peel, nutmeg, a sprinkle of cardamom and walnut. Harmonious and graceful, this is a beautiful d’Oliveira. Tasted April 2010.

•Made this one last over three or four months. A good vintage Madeira, though not a profound one. Fairly straightforward notes of caramel, orange peel, and brown gravy. Plenty of acidity. A great match for chocolate chip cookies.

•Opened to have a glass on Father's Day. Huge, brothy nose with that, beefy, cooking onion thing that I so often find in Madeira. A hint of maple syrup and some alcohol. (This was popped and poured, and I will nurse the bottle over the next several months, and I know that the alcohol will integrate with some decanting or time in an open bottle.) Gorgeous palate, salty, bracing, yet with a nice hint of coffee and molasses on the long finish. Finally this finishes out with just a kiss of brine and mouthwatering acidity.
