Madeira wine is a fortified wine from the Portuguese Island of Madeira. Unlike its better known mainland sibling Port, Madeira wine comes in all styles from dry through to sweet.
This is a premium quality wine, cask aged for a minimum of 10 years before bottling. It is a medium-sweet wine, which has been produced by 'Estufagem' a heating process where the wine is held at 40 degrees for six months before being cask aged. Madeira wine does not deteriorate once opened and so is an ideal by the glass serve.
The bright, soft sweetness is perfectly counter-balanced by the clean acidity.This is an ideal accompaniment to Tapas, Rich Pates and a Cheeseboard, as well as fresh fruit such as Pineapple and Fruity based puddings.
Rich aromas of Dried Fruits and Caramel, flavours of Sultanas and Candied Peel. Excellent when paired with fruit based puddings and fruity cheeses. This works as well as both an aperitif and as a Pudding Wine.
