Tinta Negra Mole, widely planted in Madeira, is a chameleon grape that can take on the character of any grape or style the producer fancies. Here it has transmuted into a rich Bual, wood aged and with old-gold flavors and color. The acidity at the end, which is what will preserve the wine for many years, is intense and impressive.
"Leacock’s Vintage Tinta Negra 1995 is a single harvest Madeira. This wine was aged for 21 years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system, whereby the casks were gradually transferred from the top floors of the lodge, where it is naturally warmer, to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. This process gives Madeira its unique flavor and incredible longevity. The wine was regularly racked and when it reached the desired stage of maturity it was bottled. TASTING NOTE: Deep chestnut color with golden reflections. A characteristic bouquet of Madeira with dried fruits, spices, wood and toffee. Intense and full bodied with notes of honey. Soft and sweet on the palate, with a long aftertaste of roasted dried fruits."- Winery
