    Description

    Madeira 1720
    Pather, H.M. Borges
    Bottle (1)
    "...from the private cellars of the Borges
    family (not the company, this is from the family's own private
    reserves). Apart from a few bottles of 1715 Terrantez, this is
    the oldest Madeira in existence. Probably a Moscatel, but
    might be a Bual. Originally purchased by the grandfather of
    the Borges family (hence "Pather"). His wish was that it
    eventually forced the family to do so. Kept in demijohns for
    most of its life."


    Shipping Restriction: Please note that we cannot ship to addresses in Massachusetts, so please bid accordingly.
