HM Borges, Madeira

This weekend we have a very special offer featuring the wines from one of Madeira's great shippers, H.M Borges. One of only seven remaining shippers on the island, it was founded in 1877 by Henriques Menezes Borges, a passionate connoisseur and collector of the island's wines, and is today run by the fourth generation of the Borges family, the cousins Maria Isabel and Maria Helena. The house style of each shipper is apparent in the ranges of wines of determined minimum ages (5, 10, 15 and 20 year-old etc.), and through tasting these ranges you can tell that the Borges wines tend towards the slightly sweeter side of the spectrum for each grape. There is also a strong sense of tradition here, with most wines showing considerable concentration alongside firm balancing acidity that reduces the effect of the sweetness. The offer below showcases the full range within each age category, with the driest wine in each being Sercial and increasing in sweetness levels through Verdelho, Bual and Malmsey, with extra age adding, of course, greater depth and complexity. Also available are some rare bottlings of older vintages going back as far as 1977, and some younger single-vintage (Colheita) wines in 500ml format. These represent a wonderful opportunity to purchase a small piece of history, as many of these wines come from individual casks - and once they are gone then there is no more to be had. I would urge Madeira collectors and newcomers alike to take advantage of this fine offer. If you are not familiar with one of the fine wine world's greatest styles, then you owe it to yourself to try a few bottles (and please don't worry about finishing the bottle in one sitting - you can keep them open almost indefinitely without them deteriorating). In addition, Madeira connoisseurs will find plenty here to keep them satisfied with some of the rare treats on offer here today. Please feel free to get in touch with any interest or questions you may have regarding any of these b
