    Winemaker Notes
    The winter of 1994/1995 was characterized by moderate rainfall at a lower temperature than normal. February was a dry month and the beginning of spring was moderately warm. The cold weather did not occur almost throughout the year and the conditions for  owering ended up being perfect. In August and September temperatures were very favorable on grape ripening thus achieving good levels of sugar, abundant crop and good quality. Excellent quality for Tinta Negra produced on south coast of Madeira Island (Câmara de Lobos and Estreito de Câmara de Lobos).

    93: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    The 1996 Colheita was aged in oak casks for five years and then bottled. It has a very well-defined bouquet of dried figs, lemon rind, dried herbs and a touch of dates that soar from first opening and continue to bloom over several hours. The palate is fresh and lively. This is a more feminine Colheita with a crisp thread of acidity: lovely touches of marmalade and orange rind counterbalancing its viscous texture. It exhibits impressive cohesion and linearity to create a Colheita that has intent and purpose, full of energy and race.

    92: Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
    The 1996 Broadbent Colheita is a delicious and complex Madeira. The wine shows plenty of raisins, jammy fruit, and residual sugar, making it an excellent choice with holiday fruitcakes. (Tasted: November 10, 2016, San Francisco, CA)
