Pereira D'Oliveiras


Verdelho Medium Dry Colheita (bottled 2016, 12yo) 2004


Bottled in 2016 at 12 years barrel aged. Aged via the canteiro process, which stacks barrels in warehouses, where the wine is gently warmed to create madeira's distinct style. 100% Verdelho, with between 60-80g/L residual sugar. 

Faded tropicals, sweet old persimmon with its citric edge, rancio and complex wood-oxidative characters. This is a great wine slowly lengthening sweetness is guided by typical sweet-fresh acidity. The palate has a subtle line, is gently plush, full of persimmons' perfumed sweetness, velvet-textured, golden and round with tart fruit skin and jagged citric acidity giving penetrating run.
