D'Oliveira Bastardo

D'Oliveira

Wine label
Vintage:1927
Bottle sizes:750 ML
Country:Portugal
Region:Madeira
Appellation:Madeira
Type:Madeira
Varietals:Bastardo
Varietal notes:Bastardo
Tasting:Matured in Adegas do Torreao and bottled in 2006, the Bastardo '27 has a refined, quite reticent bouquet with notes of dried honey, creme brulee and scorched earth, although it lacks the breeding of Leacock's famous Bastardo from the same vintage. The palate is very elegant and harmonious, the breeding of this almost extinct grape variety really showing through. Very refined, very precise with honey, quince, Seville orange and hazelnut towards the slightly attenuated finish. Great length. Excellent. Tasted April 2010 - Neal Martin - erobertparker.com
