Barbeito Madeira Single Harvest Malvasia 2004. The Colheita Malvasia from Barbeito is a beautifully elegant Madeira, aged for a long time using the most traditional and high quality 'Estufagem' process called Canteiro: aged without the use of any artificial heat, being stored by the winery in warm lofts and left to age by the heat of the sun.

Ricardo Diogo de Freitas took over the wine making at the family firm in 1993, and hasn't looked back. He has been the first to install robotic lagares on the island, the first to bottle vineyard specific Tinta Negra, the first to not bottle anything with added caramel, and so the list goes on. Single Cask bottling, whilst thought of as revolutionary on Madeira, when Ricardo launched the first one (in modern times) in 2003, were really only inspired by the way things were done in older times. Madeira is one of those wines which always has everyone flocking at trade tasting events, we buy loads of bottles, proudly display them on our shelves and talk about them with gusto and then....no-one really buys them! Why not, Madeira has it all, flavour, freshness, complexity, (extra booze of course) and a myriad of style which mean you can have them with virtually any food going!

  1. How good is this wine?

    Returned to buy Barbeito Madeira as a present after sampling a bottle myself last year. It is much more flavourful than labels I have bought in the local supermarkets. Just delicious. And keeps well once the bottle is opened as you would expect from madeira.
