Testament to its unique elevage, Saveiro ‘Vento do Oeste’ Meio Doce (‘Medium-Rich’) is a fascinating character study—akin to a foreign exchange student returning home after a formative year abroad. Notes and flavors of sorghum, French-burnt peanut, dry vanillin, roasted orange, and rancio-tinged baking spices are set against a backdrop of smoky/sweet, slightly funky bourbon barrel. A hallmark of many Henriques & Henriques wines, the acidity is thoroughly integrated, providing clarity and lift throughout; the time in bourbon barrel lending not only nuanced flavors but subtle tannins to augment that acidity—a new framework of expression. It does all of this with nonchalance and playful insouciance, still unmistakably Madeirense.
