Dao, 1990

Porta dos Cavaleiros

Caves S. Joao, established in 1920, became a dominant force in Portuguese wine making in the early 20th century with their houses Porta dos Cavaleiros in Dao and Frei Joao in Bairrada. Given the shifting trends in consumer preferences, Bairrada and Dao fell to obscurity in the 1990s when critical influence drove the demand for bigger, extracted, warmer climate wines. As in all things, however, what comes around goes around! Sure enough, 20 years later savvy consumers and food-conscious sommeliers are looking for finesse and freshness and heading back to Bairrada and Dao. Wines that when young had a vegetal character,

D'Oliveiras Madeira, 1990

Malvasia Madeira

Intensely rich nose and a full rich mouthful of raisins and caramel, a powerful long finish and finely balanced acidity belying its relative youth.

Domaine de Chevalier, 1990

Graves Pessac-Leogan

*** 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate ***

Tasted from a magnum purchased on release, the 1990 Domaine de Chevalier is a magnificent Pessac-Léognan, one that I was gobsmacked to find that I have never tasted before! It has one of those entrancing, tertiary, smoke and mushroom scented bouquets, secondary aromas that are beautifully defined and exude the essence of Pessac-Léognan. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, still plenty of black dusky fruit infused with pencil lead, tobacco and dried herbs such as rosemary and sage. The balance is delectable and it fans out beautifully on the finish.

Monbazillac, 1990

Chateau Le Barradis

Monbazillac is an AOC appellation for sweet wines made in an area in the wider region of Bergerac in Bordeaux,southwestern France. While not as famous nor as expensive as their western neighbors from Sauternes, Monbazillac wines are some of the most well-known sweet white wines produced in France, from botrytis-affected Muscadelle, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.

Monbazillac wines are often differentiated from the sweet wines of Bordeaux by their full-flavored profile when young (honey, apricot and sweet figs are used to describe them), and by a creamy, nutty character which they develop over time.

Muffato della Sala, 1990

Castello della Sala - Antinori

The wine shows a luminous and intense golden yellow color. The nose is delicate and elegant with its floral scents, but is dominated by the notes of ripe fruit, apricot and peach, along with hints of citrus fruit accompanied by sensations of minerals and iodine. The palate confirms the timber and character of the nose. A long and balanced wine in which sweetness and freshness fuse in perfect harmony.

Muffato della Sala is produced from grapes attacked by “noble rot”, harvested in early November when morning mists have favored the development of botrytis cinerea on the grapes. This mould reduces the water content of the berries,
