- 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.
Intensely rich nose and a full mouthful of raisins and caramel, a long powerful finish and finely balanced acidity belying its relative youth. Showing incredible concentration but also a degree of finesse.
