“You’ve had your time”

  Thanks for stopping by! You like Madeira wine? Me to! If you like what you read then why not take a look at Facebook as well? I’m there as me, myself and I. Sometimes I also tweet. Why not…

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…

Pereira d’Oliveira 1981 Verdelho Colheita

  Colheita. When most of us bump into the term we think of Port wine and not Madeira. Fair enough considering it’s a relative newcomer for Madeira wines. Simply put it’s, in Douro, a tawny port from a single vintage…

Cask 44a – again, again and again!

1988 Cossart Gordon Colheita Sercial

Glaset fullkomligen osar av elegans och komplexitet! Malda mandlar, skal från citrusfrukter, jod och perfekt integrerad ek med drag av fudge, vanilj och kaffe. En svag havsbris lurar i bakgrunden bara för att på något sätt understryka lagringssättet. Vad det…

Blandy’s Harvest Malmsey 1998 och 2001

  Årgångsbyte på gång. Ett av Systembolagets trevligaste starkviner, Blandy’s Harvest Malmsey byter nu från 1998 till 2001. Hoppet kan tyckas märkligt då huset faktiskt gjort vin däremellan men å andra sidan är Madeira knappast någon hyllrensare i Sverige. Tyvärr….
