Established in 1850, the Henrique family had been landowners on the island of Madeira since the 1400s. They are unique in the fact that they are one of the only independent Madeira producers to use estate-grown fruit. They have vineyards planted to all of the noble grape varieties, as well as Tinta Negra, a versatile workhorse grape that lacks the polished reputation of its counterparts. Verdelho, one of the noble grapes of Madeira, (and the variety of this particular bottling) is grown on the cooler slopes of the island. This 15-year-old (youngest year listed) Verdelho has notes of figs and honey, while also being smoky, meaty, and nutty with a vibrant acidity that helps lend itself well to a multitude of food pairings. Pair with olives before dinner, smoked ham during, and nutty cheeses after. Cari Bernard
Simply put, Colheita is a vintage-dated, Tawny Port. Infantado’s Colheita is unique as all the grapes come from 100% “class A” vineyards. In addition, the minimum aging in very old 500 liter casks, is for seven years before bottling. This Colheita is made through gradual oxidation and concentration, resulting in a golden brown color and complex nutty flavors. The wine will keep for months after opening. Tasted in October of 2016, the wine was remarkably complex, soft and elegant with lovely aromas and flavors of prune, tea, burned citrus, brown spice, nut and dried flowers - just delicous. This would be a perfect ending to a Thanksgiving feast, served with the pies, nuts and cheeses. Highly recommended!
Bold and richly textured from five months of lees aging and time in French oak, this is a serious expression of 100% Encruzado from one of the Dão region’s most highly respected certified organic producers. While commonly found in blends, as proven by Quinta do Perdigão, Portugal’s aromatically intense and high acid indigenous white grape has great potential to render star quality varietal wines. Here, chalky minerality and nervy acidity, reminiscent of age-worthy white Burgundy, bring balance and focus while a lively palate of lemon curd and fresh herbs make this wine an excellent companion for hearty fish stews and rich flavorful pork dishes.
