Barbeito is nowadays one of the fewest producers of Madeira wine and it’s at the same time co-shared with a japanese company. As many of you know, Barbeito usually produce Madeira wines which provide us more acidity and that’s what we can find also in this wine.

Sercial’s 1988 has a deep yellow greenish color full of richness from the aromatic complexity. Dried frutis, herbs, honey, tea, resid and iodine. It’s taste is very dry and Sercial wines used to be with powerfull complexity and presistence.


Quinta da Romaneira Vintage 1985

Quinta da Romaneira Vintage 1985

Romaneira is one of the most important estates of Douro valley which limits if we can say occupy a huge quantity of ha near the Douro river.

From a very interesting year this vintage wine from Romaneira estate had better years. We can say that is full of dried fruits, spices and it’s very smooth although it isn’t my kind of vintage. Usually I prefer Powerfull new vintages or complex ones from older years.
