D'Oliveiras Madeira 5 Year Old Dry 37.5cl


After pressing the fermentation is halted by fortification at the right point to achieve the desired degree of sweetness or dryness. It then undergoes a maturation process unique to Madeira - the Estufa system. During a period of around 3 months the wine is gradually heated to over 40°C before being allowed to cool. After this it's aged for five years in oak before bottling to mature and develop character. Gold in colour and fruity on the palate there's plenty of nutty character here and pleasingly clean acidity.

Just slightly chilled it makes a perfect aperitif alongside nibbles like salted cashews or almonds.

Pale and delicate in colour this Madeira is wonderfully fresh and clean.
