- DOliveiras 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 DOliveiras has held on to many of its most famous vintages, creating a unique and irreplaceable stock of old wines. Thus, whether an 1862 Sercial or a 1922 Bual, all were produced by the DOliveiras and their ancestors, and generally from their own vineyards in São Martinho.
Opulent and rich on the nose, dried apricots and candied peel on the palate with a rich finish and well balanced acidity. There is a fine raisin and sultana quality, and some nice baked fruits too. Complements fruits and sweeter cheeses.
