Deep amber coloured Madeira with well developed aromatics.
The estufagem process - unique to Madeira, in which the wines are carefully heated during maturation is one of the defining characteristics of this style of fortified wine. Aged for at least three years before bottling this has a really generous body that's still eleganty and complex. There are notes of apricot jam, dried fruits, figs and honey but with an excellent acidity it's nicely clean in the mouth.
An ideal after dinner drink, interestingly it also works well with smoked meats.
