Barbeito Boal 5 Year Old Reserva Madeira

£14.95

Barbeito are one of the smallest Madeira Wine producers, only founded in 1946 but has an extraordinary reputation.  Ricardo, the founder’s grandson took over in the ‘90’s, reinventing the traditional wines and techniques.  He was the first to bottle Madeira wine without adding caramel and has also bottled from a single cask, which was once a traditional way.

A medium sweet wine with aromas of dried fruit, honey and floral notes.  It has a slight smokiness on the palate yet finishes fresh and tangy.  Delightful on its own, but partners very well with semi-sweet dishes (such as poached figs, ginger cake), and can be very successful with a cheeseboard.

Description

“I find the aroma of the Barbeito wines so much harder to describe because they are very much themselves, distinctive, not a prototype Madeira – even though they are also distinctively Madeira, if that makes any sense.”

– Julia Harding MW, on www.jancisrobinson.com, on the 2014 Annual Madeira tasting, where the top two scoring wines were both Barbeito.
