Boal 5 Year Old Reserva Barbeito

Grapes Boal
Origin Portugal, Madeira
ABV 20%

Over five years old, pale in colour with a rich golden hue, medium dry, intense and long. Quite a raisiny, molasses edge gives it a roundness, but the purity is here. L&S (Jun 2010)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

The average age of this blend is five years. Heady, very lifted nose. Quite soft and gentle. Clean, dry and tangy in the Barbeito house style. I suspect this is GV. Jancis Robinson MW OBE - 2012)


The Barbeito family Madeiras are almost unique in their total non use of caramel to colour the wines. The natural pale colour of theise great Madeiras gives an impression of their being light and perhaps less concentrated than others, but on tasting the wines this impression is quickly dispelled. They are brighter and more pure than most other producers but they have beautiful texture, wonderfully intensity and are immensely long.
