D’Oliveiras Maderia 15yr
D’Oliveira was founded in 1850, the company actually uses five different producers on the island. The oldest of which dates back to 1820, D’Oliveira have some of the oldest and most sort after madeiras in their cellars in Funchal. The cellars themselves date back to 1619. Still overseen with the experience and knowledge of fifth generation D’Oliveiras, Aníbal and Luis. Madeira takes its complexity from the unique process of naturally heating the wine for several months before cooling and ageing, this 15 year old has had a lot of time to really develop a robust interesting flavour profile. Expect dry stone fruits with a light orange zest up front, finishing with nutty oaky deliciousness. Pair this dry aperitif with all things salt and savoury from oysters to savoury canapés. Get something interesting this Christmas and buy this madeira.
