About The Producer
D’Oliveira is one of the greatest of the classic Madeira shippers, and one of the few to survive from the pre-phylloxera era. With origins as far back as 1820, and today housed in cellars that date from 1619, this highly important company is still owned by the same family, who were once highly important growers in the parish of São Martinho.

Its stocks of old wines have grown over time, either through marriage with other wine-producing families, or by the purchase of other old firms. But the foundation for its unparalleled library of ancient vintages was laid more than 150 years ago in the legendary São Martinho vineyards of João Pereira D'Oliveira, the great grandfather of the current managing director, Luis D’Oliveira.

João Pereira was particularly well known for his Verdelhos, building on São Martinho’s reputation for this noble grape. The village’s Verdelhos have long enjoyed a high reputation; in 1896, the New York Madeira merchant Charles Bellows singled out São Martinho Verdelhos from the others on the island for their “wonderful perfume.”

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Bottled and painted by hand in 2018, this 1990 Malvasia has been aged for 28 years in old French oak barrels in the 17th century wine lodge in the heart of old Funchal. Enjoy it!

Lovely nose of raisins, honey and candid orange. On the palate it is very nutty, with ginger, maple syrup, mandarin and orange peel. It's sweet with great acidity and amazing intensity.
