Best when served chilled as an apéritif, this dry Madeira has a clean crisp finish with a hint of nuttiness and lingering soft fruit.
In a recent series of entry-level Madeiras, this was a standout, offering excellent complexity and richness at a reasonable price. Nuts, toffee and dried fruit aromas and flavors swirl together, balancing moderate sweetness with harmonious acids. Long on the finish. —Joe Czerwinski,
