75cl bottle - Madeira - Half-dry wine

GRAPE VARIETY  Verdelho
 
VINIFICATION
This Verdelho underwent fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at temperatures between 18°C - 21°C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After approximately 4 days, fortification with grape brandy takes place, stopping fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness.

MATURATION 
It was aged in American oak casks in the traditional 'Canteiro' system. This comprises of the gentle heating of the wine in the lofts of the lodges in Funchal. 
Over the years the wine is transferred from the top floors to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. After this gradual 'estufagem' the wine underwent racking and fining before the blend was assembled and bottled.
 
SERVING &CELLARAGE
Verdelho 5 years is fined and does not require decanting. It is excellent as an aperitif but is also exceedingly good with
soups, feathered game and patês. It has been bottled when ready for drinking and will keep for several months after opening.

 
PRESS COMMENTS
"Gorgeous full-bodied mouth feel on the palate with slightly smoked rich creamy flavours and tones of honey, introduced by luxurious warm full orangey aromas. Simply delightful."
 
TASTING NOTES
Clear, topaz colour, with a golden rim. Complex nose, revealing a fresh bouquet with raisins, dried fruits, wood and spices.
