Barbeito Single Harvest Madeira 2004

A complex, bittersweet Madeira made from the 2004 harvest of a single vineyard, located on the lower slopes of Estreito de Camara de Lobos.

One of the smallest of all Madeira producers, and only founded in 1946 by Ricardo's grandfather, and yet with an extraordinary reputation.

Ricardo Diogo de Freitas took over the winemaking at the family firm in 1993, and hasn't looked back. He possesses energy in spades - eRobertParker calls him the Island's "Gamechanger" and its easy to see why.

This Madeira is made through the Cantiero method, by which wines are cask-aged in naturally warm locations for a minimum of two years before they are fortified. This results in slower maturation, less bitter flavours and higher quality Madeira.
