Bottle Description

The Boal incorporates Tinta Negra from 1952, 1953 and 1954. Winemaker Ricardo Freitas explains there was no way he could have blended the ’52 in the 20 Year Old Verdelho. It was simply too concentrated and would have made it impossible for him to maintain the Verdelho’s youth – that tangy chutneyed fruit. The ’52 adds terrific woody resonance to this Boal – echoes of history which tickle the back palate most deliciously for an exceedingly long time. True to his word, Freitas has maintained Boal’s varietal character. It has a great concentration of singed, caramelised apple tatin fruit. With marvellous integration of flavours and consummate balance, this is an outstanding, truly exciting Madeira.
