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 one-year tinta negra goes partly on American and French oak barrels. This is according to the Canteiro system. Deep intense amber color, when we put the glass to the nose, we have aromas of honey, caramel, walnuts. When tasting, a taste of blond caramel and acacia emerges with a sweet finish that is perfectly balanced with a fine acidity. The finish is long and a real pleasure for gourmets. Serve in a fine glass at cellar temperature. Have fun! Health!
