In a nutshell:
Deep golden brown in colour, this is a full bodied, soft and rich Madeira. (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. Richly full bodied and warmly soft in texture it's full of ripe notes of toffee, coffee, molasses, and chocolate.
When to drink:
Full bodied, yet welcomingly soft it signs of with a long sweet finish. Works well as an after dinner drink with sweet, ripe fruits.
