Vinhas Velhas Branco, Antonio Madeira, 2021
Vinhas Velhas Branco, Antonio Madeira, 2021, Antonio Madeira
A world class wine from Antonio Madeira, who is at the cutting edge of contemporary Portuguese wine. As so often with top winemakers - the skill comes from looking back to the past, cultivating ancient vineyards and harnessing traditional practices.
The Vinhas Velhas has incredible concentration, depth and overflows with minerals and refreshing salinity.
Antonio farms over 20 small parcels at the foothills of the Serra dEstrela, at an average altitude of around 500m. He works with biodynamic principles but takes immense care with every tiny detail of vine work. Everything is very manual, very labour intensive, and most of the parcels are worked by horse. He has been on a mission
to unearth what he calls the Grand Cru vineyards of the Dao mountain range - very special old parcels that speak of a lengthy and forgotten heritage. Most parcels are field blends as per local tradition.
Great service and excellent wines
Excellent service and excellent wines. I wanted a selection of six wines and asked Peckham Cellars to make the choice for me based on a price range. The wines were all superb and unique in that they were from small suppliers that I personally would have no knowledge of. If you want something different at your next dinner / party then I can't recommend these guys enough.
Super-speedy delivery! My wines arrived safe and sound in fully recyclable packaging. A real bonus. Website has such a great selection it was hard to choose.
I placed my order online from…Melbourne
I placed my order online from Melbourne Australia and the delivery of my birthday gift to a friend in London happened smoothly, quickly and well presented. Big thanks to the team at Peckham Cellars
Nice wine. Easy and efficient
Great for sending to friends as gifts/congratulations. You can include a message with the wine, so ideal really. Fun range of interesting wines.
