The Rare Wine Co.; Historic Series – Boston Bual

  There’s this little thing I haven’t mentioned in the two previous postings on the Historic Series. It’s spelled old wine. Really, really old wine! In each of the wines, the winemaker Ricardo Diogo Freitas includes 15 per cent Tinta…

Vinhos Barbeito Malvasia Cask 40a vs Cask 44a

  I’ve said it before; I’m a huge fan of Ricardo’s Colheita wines and amongst all of them there’s one particular that’s just stunning – the 2000 Malvasia Single cask 44a.  You just can’t ask for more grape character than…

Cask 44a – again, again and again!

Stuck on the repeat button you think? How many times will he write about the 2000 Malvasia Cask 44a? I know, I should keep my hands off the Malvasia for a while and save some of those precious bottles for…
