D'Oliveiras Madeira, 2002

Malvasia Madeira

Description and Reviews:
The founders of D’Oliveiras were visionaries that saw the true value of Madeira Wine: its ability to improve over time. D’Oliveiras is the only Madeira Wine company that owns Madeira Wine bottles and barrels from as far as the 1850’s that can still be commercially purchased. Bottled and painted by hand in 2022, this 2002 Malvasia has been aged for 20 years in old French oak barrels in the 17th century wine lodge in the heart of old Funchal.

This 2002 Malmsey (sweet) Madeira, shows topaz and mahogany colour, translucent, with sweet aromas, very viscous texture and honeyed, uplifting green citrus notes.

Food Pairing:
Delicious with desserts. Can be served with fruits, especially pineapple, fruit salad, rich cakes, strong cheeses or chocolate. Also good with coffee as a digestive.

Storage: Madeira wines are indestructible and have the fascinating ability to remain in excellent condition for centuries. Keep your bottle of Madeira wine upright, away from direct sunlight, and it will last forever. Once opened, a bottle of Madeira wine will remain in perfect condition for months, if not years. So, don't hurry to finish the bottle. That is, if you can resist..

Madeira is made on the volcanic island of the same name situated in the Atlantic ocean some 400 miles off the North African coast. The sub-tropical island was discovered in 1419 by the Portuguese.
