D'Oliveira Boal Madeira 1984
For many Madeira lovers, Buals offer the best combination of richness and elegance. The sweetness of the wine is balanced by the tang of acidity, so the wine is not cloying; the texture, after suitable maturing, is silky and elegant. In a fine example, the finish is relatively dry and refreshing. The Bual vines, grown up to a quarter-mile elevation, are not very prolific and only small amounts of this classic grape variety are produced.
Tasting Notes: Caramel, apples, baking spices, dates, roasted coffee, chocolate
Food Pairing: Bual is great with desserts and rich cheeses.
