Broadbent 5 years old ReserveRegular price €27,80
Madeira is an island belonging to Portugal located in the Atlantic Ocean. It is located 750 kilometers west of Africa and 850 kilometers from the southern coast of Portugal. The island is very unique due to its different soil types and also climatic changes during the different seasons. The harvest is done completely manually and this over several weeks (between mid-August and mid-October). The grapes are pressed, followed by fermentation in stainless steel vats. The fermentation stops after 7 days by adding pure alcohol. Afterwards there is a warming between 40 and 50 degrees for 3 months. For this Reserve, nothing is left to chance and in the blend we look for the style where the sugars and acids best balance each other. There is an aging of 5 years in wooden barrels. Amber/gold colored with citrus and nuts in the nose. On the palate, the leftovers of orange and citrus fruits come with a rich finish that is sweet, but with fine acidity in the aftertaste. Serve in a fine glass at cellar temperature. Have fun! Health!
