H & H MADEIRA MEDIUM RICH 750ML
Madeira comes from the island of the same name which is part of Portugal, despite being situated 1000 kilometres south west, off the coast of Africa. Its grapes grown on volcanic soils in a warm, relatively high rainfall climate and the wines were traditionally transported in barrels on ships, where the wine warmed up and baked in the heat, so that it maderised, hence the name. Today, Madeira comes in a wider range of defined styles than ever before. This wine is a sweet style and would typically contain between 78 and 100 grams of residual sugar per litre of wine, putting it firmly in the sweet/ luscious style. Drink it chilled as a beautifully complex dessert wine or use in cooking - it works well in both sweet and savoury dishes.
