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. This verdelho goes partly on American and French oak barrels. These ripen according to the traditional Canteiro system. Amber-colored with scents of mandarin, exotic fruit and ripe apricot in the nose. In the mouth, this medium is dry with a mouth-filling finish. Serve in a fine glass at cellar temperature. Health!
