d Oliveiras Sercial 1999 Madeira
When the Y2K crisis was just around the corner this wine was already getting ready for its long rest in the traditional estufas in tropical Madeira island. Sercial is usually planted in the coolest most elevated sites of the island, representing the driest style of Madeira. Deep amber, with savoury hazelnut and toasted almond aromas alongside some gentle vanilla overtones, refreshed by a crisp yellow caramelized apple twist. Delicate, wonderful and complex.
