In a nutshell:
Deep amber coloured Madeira that's mouthwateringly tangy and has well developed aromatics. (Half Bottle)
Made predominantly from Tinta Negra Mole grapes the fermenting juice is fortified before undergoing a maturation process unique to Madeira - the Estufa system. During a period of around 3 months the wine is gradually heated to over 40°C before being allowed to cool. After this it's aged for three years in oak before bottling. It has has a really generous and complex body that retains plenty of elegance. There are notes of apricot jam, dried fruits, figs and honey but with an excellent acidity it's nicely clean in the mouth.
When to drink:
Great with desserts, it's also an ideal after dinner drink and also works well with smoked meats and strong cheeses.
