Professional Wine Reviews for Barbeito Malvasia Single Cask 2001

Rated 93 by Robert Parker
The 2001 Malvasia Single Cask 727 D+E is sourced from vineyards from Sao Jorge and was aged at the Afonso warehouse until 2008 and then at the new warehouse. It was bottled in September 2011. It has a thrilling, ebullient, walnut bouquet that leaps from the glass like a jack-in-the-box. The palate is supremely well-balanced and surfeit with personality: smoke, raisin, fig, walnut and then more walnuts sprinkled over the finish. This is turning into a sensational Malvasia that leans towards the more oxidative style. There are only 978 produced.

Additional Information on Barbeito Malvasia Single Cask 2001

Winery: Barbeito

Region: Madeira

Situated off the north west coast of Africa, the island of Madeira is home to one of Portugal's best known and widely loved imports. Madeira wine has been made for centuries from the grape varietals which thrive and flourish on the island, and is the lasting evidence of the innovation shown by Portuguese and British sailors, keen to make their wine last longer on ocean voyages. Madeira is an idyllic place, and a wonderful location for viticulture. The blazing sunshine lasts almost all year long, and provides plenty of time for slow, full ripening of quality grape varietals such as Malvasia and Sercial, whilst the mineral rich and volcanic soils of the island provide the vines with all the nutrients and character they require.

Country: Portugal

Benefiting from both the hot, dry Iberian climate as well as brisk Atlantic winds, Portugal is a perfectly situated country for vineyard cultivation and wine production. With a wine making history which stretches back thousands of years, it comes as little surprise that wine plays an important role in the cultural identity and practices of the country. The Phoenicians, the Carthaginians, the Greeks and the Romans all had a hand in forming Portugal as an important center for wine production, and over the millennia, this resulted in each region of this beautiful part of Europe producing its own distinctive wines easily identifiable and separate from neighboring Spain's. Today, the varied terroir and climate across Portugal allows a great range of wines to be made each year, from the fresh and dry Vinho Verde wines to the famous and widely drunk fortified Port wines, and many in between.
