  • Lot:According to Gaspar Frutuoso in his book “Saudades da Terra”, the Malvasia Cândida was the first grape variety to be planted in Madeira Island and arrived to Fajã dos Padres through the Jesuit priests, in the second half of the XVI century. Since 2006 Ricardo Diogo has been making wines with grapes harvested in Fajã dos Padres. A portion of those wines have been aging in the warehouses of Vinhos Barbeito. Amongst the Malvasia Cândida wines that he liked the most, he selected a few to make this Special Reserve blend that intends to pay homage to the Vilhena de Mendonça family in celebration of their 100th anniversary of property ownership this year. In November 2021, 2366 units were bottled, all individually numbered.
  • Tasting notes:Gold Colour. The nose is a palette of sophisticate aromas, with a hint of discreet wood, apricot, anise, caramel and raisins. The mouth is smooth and very delicate, with layers of caramel and a precise citrus acidity. It finishes luscious and with a beautiful dryness. Excellent with rich fruit cakes and Christmas pudding.
